This year's district conference is exceptionally important to the Rotary Club of Atascadero as Loretta Butts is our District Governor. The major events of the District Conference are the 200K cycling event from Paso Robles to Monterey and a cycle/run/walk event in Monterey's seaside walk. Both events are designed to help raise money for the Polio Plus campaign to end polio. Club members are encouraged to check with either Steve Hodgson or John Hollenbeck to see how you can help with this fun and important event. Click the web link below to take you to the event website.
 
 
Steve Hodgson will be representing our club on the 200k ride.  Steve is pictured below in the "Death Ride" which includes 5 mountain passes in the California Alps.  He will be doing the EPIC-Challenge ride to end polio on your behalf so that you don't need to.  What you do need to do is donate to the Rotary Polio fund on Steve's account:

Miles to end polio: $6 million crosses the finish line for polio eradication
Rotary General Secretary John Hewko and six RI staff members bicycled 104 miles in Tucson Arizona, USA, on Saturday, for the Miles to End Polio event, raising more than $6 million for polio eradication. 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. The race attracts more than 9,000 cyclists a year, making it one of the top cycling events in the U.S. The...
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. The two organizations began working together with the aim of maintaining peace after World War II. Today, the relationship has evolved to include humanitarian work in areas like gender equality, child and maternal health, and disease treatment and prevention. While the UN's Millennium Development Goals are set to expire in 2015, its leaders are preparing for an even more ambitious humanitarian agenda of eradicating extreme poverty by...
A major breakthrough against polio
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are approaching a significant milestone: the eradication of type 3 wild poliovirus. The last case of polio caused by the type 3 virus was reported in Yobe, Nigeria, on 10 November 2012. "We may have eradicated a second of three; that's a major milestone," said Dr. Stephen Cochi, a senior adviser at the Center for Global Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking to the BBC. Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
Rotary’s World Polio Day live-streamed event is a huge success

Malala Yousafzai wins the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in support of girls' education, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014. Yousafzai, whose father is a Rotarian, shares the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a native of India who has worked to combat the exploitation of children for financial gain, according to an announcement in October from the Norwegian Nobel Committee. In announcing the award, the committee praised Yousafzai for demonstrating that "children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations." It noted...
