Celebrating 100 years
of changing lives in Australia & New Zealand
CELEBRATE OUR HISTORY, EMBRACE OUR FUTURE.
We are Rotary!
Our R100 ribbons represent the Rotary road we travel, our runners tell the story of diversity and inclusion, our baton is filled with the energy of Rotarians around our countries lighting up our communities with service above self.
The R100 Baton Relay is an event across Australia & New Zealand to celebrate 100 years of Rotary working in our communities. R100 Baton Relay will run throughout Australia, State by State, District by District, Club by Club.
Our vision is to have every club to participate and involve their communities, to bring local colour and culture, to own their celebration of 100 years of Rotary service with the R100 Baton Imagine Rotarians, local personalities, Councillors, community leaders, community groups, and everyday people around Australia & New Zealand carrying the baton of service, and passing it forward
ARE YOU READY TO RUN WITH THE R100 BATON?
Rotarians in Australia and NZ along in collaboration with UNICEF have a bold ambition: to immunise 100,000 of the most disadvantaged children across the Pacific in 4 years.
Across 9 Pacific nations, we will help introduce 3 lifesaving vaccinations to prevent diseases like cervical cancer, severe diarrhoea, pneumonia, blood infection and meningitis.
Rotary’s support will also help sustain the local health system for the sustainable delivery of vaccinations so that future generations will continue to benefit in the long term.
A truly inspiring Rotary legacy.
