Why I am fundraising for The Rotary Foundation
On this day three years ago, my dad (Mark) and I embarked on a mission to visit every train station in Sydney in one day. With the help of friends from all over Sydney (and beyond), we raised $243,635.00 in one day! The train ride continued on World Polio Day in 2019 and 2020, growing to Train Rides in Brisbane, Perth, Auckland, and Wellington. Together we have raised over $1.5 million.
Due to the lockdown in Australia, the Train Ride to End Polio will not take place on World Polio Day, instead it is being postponed to take place on Rotary's birthday, 23 February. It is also 50 years for the Rotary Club of Beecroft.
To celebrate the three year anniversary of this endeavour, I am hoping to raise 3% of what we did on the first day. I will be keeping this campaign active until World Polio Day on 24 October.
