2018 World Health Run Sponsors
World Health Run strives to project an image that upholds the highest values in human health, planetary health, social responsibility. We are proudly seeking corporate sponsors and foundations that fully align with our Mission, Vision, and Values. If you and your organization embraces these ideals as part your core mission, please apply here. You can learn more below.
Our core sponsors for this year include the National Peace Corps Association, the Rotary One International Committee, the Consortium of Universities for Global Health, and Peace Care. These organizations are our principle beneficiaries, as well. The WORLD HEALTH RUN supports these organizations and their local chapters, affiliates, and clubs. These organizations are supporting the event, not through financial contribution, but through in-kind assistance with messaging and promotion. We are proud to support these highly impactful organizations through this event and raise awareness of their work at the global and local levels.

Rotary is a community of friends who are committed to creating positive change in the world. It was the world’s first service club, launched in Chicago in 1905. Today, Rotary has grown into an international organization—with Rotary One being the original chapter. Rotary One’s mission is to promote ethical leadership, professional success and friendship among Club members through service in our community and around the world.
