On Saturday, May 27th, four members of the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen raised $7,000 for The Rotary Foundation by jumping out of a plane 12,000 ft above the ground. With matching grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Government of Canada the $7,000 raised will turn into a $35,000 donation towards ending Polio. These funds will help immunize close to 350,000 children against this horrific disease. Shane Todhunter, Vickii Paramanathan, Elizabeth Wagner, and Randy Bilesky took the courageous leap with the support of Skydive Vancouver’s staff. “What an exhilarating way to support a cause I care so much about” stated Todhunter after he landed, and said he would have loved to do it again.
 
The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen partners with various International Organizations to eradicate Polio. As of June 2014, there are only 3 countries in the world where there are still cases of Polio reported each year. Rotary’s goal is to see polio wiped from the face of the world within the next few years.
 
On Saturday, June 10th soap box derby enthusiasts, builders, and drivers congregated along 6th avenue in Tsawwassen to take part in the 2nd annual Soap Box Derby hosted by the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen in partnership with the Corporation of Delta. Over 1500 spectators watched 45 soap box drivers ages nine to twelve zoom down the 600+ foot track to compete against one another to find out who would be crowned this year’s soap box derby grand champion, and be awarded the 1st place Trophy. The trophy was claimed by Vanessa Costa racing for Shpak and Co as she recorded the fastest time of the afternoon. Rory Brown, driver for Swim Blue was awarded second place, and Luka Wiesel driving South West Mortgage clinched third. There were three new awards given out this year for Best Costume, Cart Design and Crowd Favourite. Jackson Yagin "the banana man" won best costume, Rat Rod Roxy cart for Go Green Pest Control won for best cart design, and Teagan Reid, driver for Scott Reid Plumbing won for Crowd Favourite. All riders were presented with a medal for participation, but went home with more than a medallion around their neck. They were also part of a great event that raised over $15,000 for the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen’s Community projects. Race coordinator Rick Lewall said "it was a great day, and I'm already anticipating next years race" The Rotary club of Tsawwassen would like to thank all of the drivers, sponsors, volunteers, and the Corporation of Delta for making this years Derby such a success. 
 
The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen is currently looking for local Businesses wanting to sponsor a Kart in this years Soap Box Derby. Last year over four hundred plus people watched forty-three racers ages nine to thirteen zoom down the 400 foot track to compete against one another and find out who would be crowned the soap box derby champion. First place was claimed by two local speedsters; Noah Boisvert racing for Scott Walker and Associates, and Riley Smithurst representing Hillmar Industries LTD. Teagan Douglas, driver for Randy's Tire Craft took home second place, and Sophia Schallig driving MK Delta Land Group’s cart clinched third. Awards were also given to the top three best designed carts, which were decided by the viewers of the race. First place was won by Scott Reid Plumbing and Heating, second place went to Delta Optimist, and third place was won by Randy’s Tire Craft. Will this be your year?
