Kiwanis Club of La Jolla

From The President

Kiwanis is an incredible opportunity to help your community and I strongly recommend you try it. Volunteerism is such a rewarding experience, and it is so easy to make a difference in the life of a child, or any community member in need, for that matter. Need exists all around us, every day, and we are often so busy living our own lives that we just do not see it.

During my twenty-two years as a member of this club we have raised millions of dollars to donate to charitable organizations with an emphasis on children. Our primary fundraiser is the La Jolla Half Marathon and Shores 5K. And we host several other community events during the year both a fundraisers and as gifts to the community. You can read about them elsewhere on this website.

Since the beginning of the Covid 19 crisis we have been meeting virtually every Friday at twelve thirty on Zoom.  Please join us there at Zoom 967-4456-5293 on Fridays at 12:30 to get a better sense of who we are. We will resume in-person meetings as soon as it is safe to do so. Please send me an email if you have any questions.

Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways. Each community’s needs are different—so each Kiwanis club is different. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed, and thrive, great things happen.
