The Cause

For over thirty years, the Jamestown Rotary Club has supported a number of causes in the community and around the world with the proceeds of it annual bike race. We have made contributions to the Food Pantry, provided Thanksgiving Baskets for needy families, helped build playgrounds, a nature trail, and historic and memorial sites in Jamestown, provided scholarships, sponsored essay contests, supported projects for scouts and recreational sports, cultural visits, student exchange programs, immunization clinics and a host of youth and senior projects to assist people in need.
Additional Information
In recent years, the proceeds from the Jamestown Classic have reached beyond the borders of the island to third world countries. Our 25th annual event provided 23 homes for needy families in Southern India helping to bring stability to lives that would otherwise be spent under a piece of cardboard in the street. Subsequent races provided funds for uninsured victims of 9/11, janitors and service personnel not covered by insurance. In previous years, some of the the proceeds from our race resulted in 280 wheelchairs being given to needy handicapped men, women and children in Nicaragua as part of an annual mission to that region co-directed by one of our Jamestown Rotarians.
