Rohil Bhinge

SPOTLIGHT ON: Rohil Bhinge
Elly Doyle Park Service, Student Honoree 2013

Ten-year-old Rohil Bhinge loves to run. He and his brother Samik are both active runners and understand the value of fitness and good health. In October 2012, Rohil organized a fun run to raise money for Chessie’s BIG Backyard located at the Lee District Family Recreation Area. He understood that this playground was special in that it is accessible to all – children with disabilities and those without. Earlier that summer he had visited the playground and found out that $1 million was needed to complete the multiphased project. He decided he wanted to do his part.

His first fun run, held on a trail in his Fairfax neighborhood, drew parents and children. Thirty-five children and 23 adults participated including local elected officials, Park Foundation representatives as well as two-time Olympian Moise Joseph. They raised $1,350 and decided to make this an annual event. The second fun run drew over 100 people, a smattering of dignitaries, and raised more than $2,000.

Plans for the next run are currently underway and the word is spreading about a determined young man that loves to run, understands the power of giving and wants to make sure that all children, regardless of their abilities, have a place to play.
