The Rotary Club of Doylestown is proud to support global efforts to eradicate polio!
 
One way you can us in our efforts is by supporting the local Purple Pinkie Run in Schnecksville, PA on October 14th!
 
Can't come on the 14th?  Sponsor one of our runners . . . "End Polio Pete" or "Let's Get Purple Allen".
 
 
Why is it called "Purple Pinkie" ?  
 
When vaccinating the children in remote parts of the world, the medical team hands out candy.  But kids, being smart, started showing up in line multiple times to get more.  So the medical folks began to roll the children's’ pinkie finger in purple ink to identify those who’d been inoculated.  Today, we run with “Purple Pinkies” to show our support of the people needing our help to fight this horrible disease.
 
All of this leads up to World Polio Day on October 24th.
