The London Bridge Rotary Club will host and staff the 44th Annual Track Invitational this Saturday, at Lake Havasu High School.
“We provide shirts for the boys and girls teams, trophies for the winning teams and metals to all of the kids with Rotary coins on them,” said London Bridge Rotary Club member, Shane Delaney.
“Many Rotarians come out to help and do the timing, check-ins and write down the results as well. Overall, Rotary and its members sponsor this event.”
The first track invitational first took place in 1979 by Havasu pioneer Jim Sterling and has been a Rotary sponsored event ever since.
“Jim Sterling who was one of the track coaches out there started this over 44 years ago and it’s been great for all the kids involved,” Delaney said.
Sterling was also the cofounder of the London Bridge Rotary Club and dedicated himself to many Lake Havasu City improvements until his passing in 2019.
The event will involve athletic contests including throwing skills, jumping, and running and will begin at 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., at the Lake Havasu High School track and field venue located on 2675 Palo Verde Blvd. South, Lake Havasu City.
All are invited. For more information, contact Shane Delaney at email@example.com or 928-453-1306. For more information on the London Bridge Rotary, club visit www.londonbridgerotary.com.
