The money raised by Rotary will receive a two-to-one match from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In addition to the team from Evanston, 100 Rotary member riders took part in the ride. The fundraising ride is part of the annual El Tour de Tucson bike event in Tucson, Arizona, USA.

Rotary Day at the United Nations highlights the strength of partnerships
To strengthen their 69-year-old partnership, leaders from Rotary and the United Nations met this month in New York City for Rotary Day at the United Nations.

Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
