End Polio Now!
For the month of November, Rotary 5160 is teaming up with our Rotary family to raise money for End Polio Now. Throughout the month, we will be sharing our Polio stories and why they joined Rotary. The goal is to raise funds and awareness to fight Polio head on.
What is Polio?
Poliomyelitis is a highly infectious viral disease which penetrates the nervous system and can lead to paralysis. It is passed through contaminated food and water or the fecal oral route. One sixty cent vaccine can grant a child a lifetime free from Polio.
How you can help?
This year, Rotary 5160 is launching their very own November End Polio Campaign. With the partnerships of our Youth Programs, we as a Rotary Family, have been able to create our very own End Polio Now video. You can donate right now directly to our district.
These funds will be matched by Rotary International and the Gates Foundation. While we appreciate monetary contributions, we also hope you can raise awareness by sharing our End Polio Now video
