On October 24th Rotary International will celebrate World Polio Day to help raise awareness and the funding needed to reach full eradication. Since its formation in 2003, the Rotary Club of San Juan Islands has donated over $70,000 to ending polio.


The local Rotary club contributes $1,000 annually through Concours d’Elegance. In addition, this year they gave $1,000 to campaign for Peking to Paris Endurance Motor Challenge, a 10,000 mile race to bring awareness to End Polio Now program, and additional donations of $5,000 through club and individual giving.

In 30 years, Rotary International has seen 125 polio-endemic countries to reduced to only three (Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan), by immunizing over 2.5 billion children.

Yet, without full funding and political commitment, this paralyzing disease could return to previous polio-free countries, putting children everywhere at risk.

Please consider a donation today to Rotary Foundation PolioPlus Fund at www.rotary.org/endpolio . Your gift will be matched 2-1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Help Rotary see this fight to the end.
