Update #29
9 months ago

I pulled into Spikes Keg of Nails at 10:23. Their grill is open to 11:00. As soon as I unplugged I was instantly chilled. Had a Spike Burger and soup and a Strohs, or two. 15 hours and 23 minutes of riding was not the plan. Total distance was 580 miles. Should have been quicker. I really appreciate the help and support of Annette on postings and the donations you all have made. We have over twenty days remaining with this donation portal so we will keep it open til then. Thanks for making this such a memorable World Polio Day. End Polio Now.

Why I am fundraising for The Rotary Foundation
In the 1980's, Rotary International committed to eliminating Polio from the planet. Over 1,000 children were paralyzed each and every day. 350,000 new cases every year. Slowly progress was made and Rotary found powerful partners and now the task is down to 2 countries. As long as Polio still exists it can travel anywhere and infect anyone that is unprotected. The final steps of eliminating this terrible disease will be the hardest, requiring millions of vaccinations delivered in the toughest parts of the world, where vaccine workers risk their personal safety. Rotary never backed away from this effort and will see it to the end. Your donation will be tripled by the Gates Foundation. A $20 donation becomes $60. A $50 donation becomes $150. A $100 donation becomes $300. Sunday October 24th is World Polio Day. On that day I will ride the coastline of the mitt of Michigan to bring attention to our effort and to ask for your help. Please consider a donation.
