Update #2
4 months ago from Paul Metivier

Polio is still around! Rotary has been working to eradicate it from the world for the last 30 years. It is still in 2 countries - Afghanistan and Pakistan. There have been only a handful of wild polio cases this year. To declare a country polio free, there can be no cases for 3 years.
Work is continuing to immunize everyone in those countries. We are so close to eradicating this dreaded disease, but it is costly. Please consider donating to our polio fundraiser. For every dollor donated, about 2 children get vaccinated. The Gates Foundation will match your donation 2 to 1. So if you donate $10, Gates Foundation will donate $20, making $30. That means about 60 kids vaccinated! That is a great deal! Please donate to our polio fundraiser! Help rid the world of polio!

Why we are fundraising for The Rotary Foundation
Each year, the Northwest Rotary Club pops a pumpkin with rubber bands. The person that guesses the number of rubber bands it will take to pop our pumpkin without going over, wins $100. All proceeds will go to the PolioPlus Campaign sponsored by the Rotary Foundation.

This year, we will be popping our pumpkin - Lucky Jack - in front of Huntley Springs Retirement Center (11700 Samantha Ln, Huntley, IL 60142) on October 29th at 2:00 pm. In addition, RILEE - the Rotary Iron Lung Education Exhibit will be open for touring. Get an upfront understanding of why Rotary International is working to eradicate Polio from the face of the earth.
