Rotary Del Sol Awards $74,000 to Children's Charities
Congratulations to the 2023 Don Chalmers grant recipients.  The Rotary Del Sol Foundation awarded $74,000 to non-profits that serve children in New Mexico at a jam-packed meeting last week.  This year's recipients are:
Albuquerque Museum Foundation ($9000)
Beds4Kidz ($19,000)
Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation ($9000)
Global Give-A-Book ($19,000)
New Mexico BioPark Society ($9000)
Talking Talons Youth Leadership ($9000)
We'll be hearing from each non-profit throughout the year about how they use the grants. 
Cycling for Cycles
Thank you to everyone who came out and helped with a very successful Cycles for Cycling event.  The club came together to support  Women To Be provide underwear and reusable, washable sanitary pads to give girls what they need each month to stay in school and get an education. These pads last three years.  Girls receive a reproductive health class to teach them how their bodies work and what to expect in marital intimacy.

Thank you to our sponsors Crystal Clear Maintenance, Wellcare, Tutor Doctor, City of Albuquerque, Fat Tire, and Cyclebar. Thanks to Jimmy's and Donut Mart for food donations.  

Last week's meeting was standing room only.  Not only did we award the Don Chalmers grants - we also heard from Kurt Walters who shared highlights from his 500 mile walk through France, Spain and Portugal on the Camino de Santiago. 

Rick Akins

Past District Governor and RDS Honorary Member Rick Akins was admitted to Sandoval Regional Medical Center today for what seems to be cancer in his liver. He will be at Sandoval until early this upcoming week and then transferred to the UNM Cancer Center.  We’ll keep you updated.
