When John Germ takes office as Rotary International’s president in July, it will mark his 40th year in Rotary. In that time, he’s likely best-known for leading Rotary’s $200 Million Challenge, a fundraising effort sparked by a challenge grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Rotarians surpassed that goal in 2011, raising $228.7 million toward polio immunization activities. “I never questioned that we would raise the funds,” he says. “Rotarians have been so generous.” In fact, raising money for polio was one of Germ’s first leadership roles.

The Malden Rotary Road Race was a tremendous success. We had a great turnout for our running base and an incredible cadre of volunteers. We want to thank the Malden Police Department and the Middlesex Sheriff's Office for keeping our runners safe along the course. The City of Malden has been an incredible host to our 5K and 10K races and we are proud to have the support of Mayor Gary Christenson who has run our race without fail for the last several years.
We were very proud to honor a true Maldonian as our Official Starter. Former State Representative Christopher Fallon joined us at the starting line and sent the runners into the streets ready to set personal bests. Chris Fallon has been a strong, key community leader for decades and we are happy to see that he is still leading and playing a role in our community. Chris is only the second community leader to serve as our Official Race Starter, he joins Chief Jack Colangeli as Malden Rotary's Pace Setters!
