Delegates at the 97th Annual Capital District Kiwanis Convention in Roanoke, Virginia passed a resolution pledging their fair share membership goal of just under US $3 million to The Eliminate Project over the course of the next five years. This pledge will save or protect over 1.7 million women and their future babies.
The Capital District of Kiwanis has already raised US$1.75 million in cash and pledges to date and including the US$250,000 pledge made by the Capital District of Key Club at their convention in March, brings the remaining total in our new pledge to roughly $1 million.
