Cultural Exchange Trip
Our 2017 Urayasu Exchange Program trip to Urayasu, Japan has concluded, with Club Members Hansen Hermono, Amy Ertel, and Chris Alianiello representing the ORC in the Tokyo Bay Half Marathon. The 2018 edition of our trip application will be available in the Fall.
The Charles M. Rowson, Jr. Memorial Scholarship was established in 1983 by the Orlando Runners Club in memory of one of our members, Chuck Rowson, who died unexpectedly at age 29. The ORC has provided scholarships each year since to local high school athletes, now providing a $1,500 scholarship to up to four students, for a total of $6,000. The Charles M. Rowson, Jr. Scholarship has become recognized as one of Central Florida's most prestigious awards given to graduating seniors with an interest in running. The winners are selected by the Club based on their academic achievements, athletic abilities, school and community involvement and financial need. Scholarships are presented each year at a Club event.
Applicants must be graduating high school seniors in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, or Volusia counties who have competed in cross country, track, or both. A completed scholarship application and letters of recommendation must be received by the ORC by April 11, 2017. Funds for the scholarship program are made possible through the volunteer efforts of our club members and their families at the annual Corporate 5k event in Orlando. The ORC respectfully requests that all scholarship recipients and/or their families volunteer with the ORC at this event the year after their award.
