Summit County Rotarians checking in community members at the 9 Health Fair
9 Health Fair
For more than 25 years, Summit County Rotary has provided the leadership and volunteers to bring the 9Health Fair to our community. More than 100 volunteers including Rotarians and medical professionals from St. Anthony Summit Medical Center provide free and low-cost screenings and education to approximately 1,000 participants each year. 9Health Fair is Colorado’s largest non-profit, volunteer-driven health fair.
The Troop Support Program was established to send packages to soldiers deployed in war zones. Members of our mountain community contact us with the addresses of their family and friends. We’ve partnered with the Summit Daily News, who helps us gather easily consumed foods, toiletries, writing and reading materials, clothing, and the like.
Since 2006, we have sent over 1200 packages that provide “a little bit of home” while supplementing their government-issued rations. The troops share with their buddies and report that this helps strengthen relationships and bolster morale overseas.
Community Care Clinic
The mission of Summit Community Care Clinic is to provide exceptional, integrated, patient-centered health care services regardless of patients’ ability to pay. The Rotary Club of Summit County made the decision to provide $40,000 of funding to the Community Care Clinic (CCC) as our 2005 Centennial Year Project for Rotary International. Additionally, we provide $3,000 annually. The Community Care Clinic does an amazing job, and we are proud to provide whatever support we can.
