Why I am fundraising for The Rotary Foundation
On October 24, 2020, World Polio Day, I will be “Pedaling for Polio”.
Why Polio? Rotary, along with the WHO, CDC and UNICEF has worked to reduce polio from 350,000 new cases in 125 countries in 1988, to just 105 new cases in 2 countries, Pakistan and Afghanistan in 2020 - a 99.98% reduction! This is a tremendous success story, but we can’t stop until the job is done! The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match every donation 2:1! Any amount is appreciated! On behalf of children all over the world, THANK YOU!

Your donation helps Rotary reach every child with the polio vaccine.
