Thanks to all who made this fundraiser possible. Without a "grand in hand" I was not going to allowed up in the plane you see above. In fact, the guy you see jumping above is our 101 Years Young WWII D-Day Veteran and Grand Marshall of our Rotary District 6290 "Jump!4Polio'22" Dick Groat. The view is down the Michigan Lakeshore south of Grand Haven to Holland and the sliver of water is the 6-mile long Lake Macatawa feeding into Lake Michigan.
Thanks to all of you who have already given to help me meet my goal of $1,500.00 for Jump! 4 Polio. Just a few days left, so I trust we'll get over that hump as we know a few more donations are on their way in. We've had cash donations and checks as well which I will turn in on Jump Day. It's exciting to think that we could end this journey of over 40 years to end a disease which effected so many lives of friends of mine over the years. I thank my parents for trusting the science, taking that leap of faith to get me immunized way back in the day so that I could be here now to take my own leap, or "Jump!" of faith and put a final nail in Polio's coffin!
Today, June 22, is my daughter's birthday so I am going to celebrate by doing District 6290 Jump!4Polio'22 in her and my family's honor!
Your donation helps Rotary reach every child with the polio vaccine.
