WOODRIDGE – The Woodridge Rotary Club was recently recognized by Gov. Pat Quinn for its August mini triathlon.

Quinn announced the winners of the 31st annual Governor's Hometown Awards Tuesday. Twenty-two organizations throughout the state were honored, recognizing volunteers for their community efforts and totaling more than 90,000 hours of volunteered time.

Woodridge's Rotary Club was awarded because the annual triathlon event promotes healthy lifestyles and raises funds to support other local activities.

“The Governor’s Home Town Awards honor the efforts of 22 remarkable groups who have selflessly dedicated their time and efforts to making their communities a better place to live,” Quinn said. “We applaud these groups of volunteers for improving the lives of others and truly making a difference in our state.”
