The East Arlington Rotary has several important focuses such as Adaptive Sports for the physically challenged, so they may enjoy an active lifestyle the same as anyone else. As a partner with Brooks rehab we as a club have committed to providing a second bus so more Brooks members can participate in the Adaptive Sports program.
The East Arlington Rotary also assists in raising funds, packing food and donating food to Micha's Backpack. This program helps students on a subsidized lunch program have adequate nutrition away from school on weekend and evenings.

The tournament will be held on Monday November 6th at the Best Bet Poker Room at 201 Monument Road and will feature:
By participating as a player, spectator, sponsor or promoter you are helping disabled athletes gain access to life enhancing sports and recreation activities. These activities provide many social, physical, and emotional health benefits.
