4th Annual Fun Run - December 5, 2015 @ 10:00 AM
Rohil and Samik Bhinge founded Fairfax Fun Run in 2012, which organizes fundraising fun runs in northern Virginia. Rohil is the 2015 US Geography Olympiad elementary level champion and is donating part of his cash winnings to Pencils of Promise, an organization which helps build schools in developing countries, such as Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos. The fourth fun run will be held on December 5, 2015, at 10:00 am to raise additional funds for Pencils of Promise. More details can be found in the flyer. In the past three annual fun runs, they helped raise money for the Fairfax County Park Foundation to build phases of the fully accessible Chessie’s BIG Backyard in Lee District Park, in Fairfax County, Virginia. Sign up for the event under the Registration tab, and donate on the respective tab.
THE CARSON SCHOLARS FUND 2015
The Maryland-based Carson Scholars Fund, founded by presidential candidate and renowned neurosurgeon Ben Carson, has honored thousands of student volunteers. Rohil was one of the over 200 scholars from around the country honored at a banquet near Baltimore, Maryland.
Best of Braddock Awards 2014
The Best of Braddock Awards, honoring volunteers in the Braddock District of all ages, honored Rohil for his efforts. It occurred on July 9, 2014, which coincidentally was the date that Rohil was recognized by the county the year before.
Lord Fairfax 2014
To top everything off, Rohil received the title "Lord Fairfax 2014 - At Large" on June 3, 2014. Every year, 20 volunteers (only one or two each year are children) are chosen by Fairfax County Board of Supervisors members for excellent park service. Rohil was chosen by Chairman Bulova.
