BENEFITING: Rotary Foundation of Rotary International
EVENT DATE: Jun 22, 2015
All, including you, have been vaccinated against Polio. Without this vaccine a simple walk to school can be as difficult as reaching the this challenge every day summit of the Kilimanjaro. We have chosen to climb this summit in order to raise funds that will Rotary to fight against this desease.
Since 1985, with the lead of Rotary, through its ‘Polio +’ and ‘End Polio Now’ programs, more than 2,5 billion children have been vaccinated against polio thanks to the unprecedented cooperation of more than 200 countries and 20 million volunteers, sustained by an international investment of more than 8 billion USD.
Today, only 3 endemic countries remain, and the annual number of polio cases has greatly diminished by over 99%.
We are “this close" to make history: Eradicate Polio.
Join us in order to make sure that no child will ever have to confront a mountain to simply get to go to school.
