BENEFITING: Rotary Foundation of Rotary International

EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2012

THE STORY:

On November 17, my wife Marga and I will be joining Arizona Rotarians and their guests for the El Tour de Tucson Ride, one of the top cycling events in the country.  The event attracts more than 9,000 cyclists a year, and its organizers encourage participants to use the ride to raise money for worthy causes.

My cause and that of Rotary International is to end polio forever.   This would be only the second time in history that a disease is wiped from the face of the earth.

When Rotary began the fight to end polio in 1985 there were over 350,000 cases annually and 125 countries were polio-endemic.  Since then, polio cases have been reduced by 99% and only three countries remain where transmission of the wild poliovirus has never been stopped.

We are “this close” to eradicating this crippling disease and creating a polio-free world.  The only thing that is keeping us from making history is funding.

During this year’s El Tour de Tucson, Marga and I intend to raise $111,000 to help protect the world’s children from this paralyzing disease.  That’s one thousand dollars for every mile in the 111-mile course.

But we’ll need your help to do it.  Please make a contribution and share this page with your friends and family.  Your contribution will be made to The Rotary Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization.  All contributions are tax deductible.

A donation of any size – big or small-- would be appreciated.

Be a part of history.
