BENEFITING: Rotary Foundation of Rotary International
I am pedaling to "End Polio Now" so others can walk as part of Rotary International's PolioPlus campaign. Each year I ride in El Tour de Tucson with nearly 100 other Rotarians to raise money so we can immunize children for PolioPlus. PolioPlus is Rotary's campaign to eradicate polio in the world. Rotarians around the world have given over 1 Billion dollars for this cause since 1985. When Rotary started this campaign, there were over 350,000 cases worldwide in 125 countries. Last year there were only 223 cases in 5 countries, however that is still 223 kids whose lives were changed for life!
We are truly "This Close" to eradicating this crippling disease and creating a polio-free world. With only three countries remaining the only thing that is keeping us from "finishing the job" is funding.
I am attempting to raise $1,000,000 to immunize the world's children from this paralyzing disease.
We'll need your help to do it. Please make a contribution and share this page with your family and friends. Your contribution will be made to The Rotary Foundation, a 501 (c)3 organization. All contributions are tax deductible.
