On Saturday October 2nd our members Phil Shames and Sarah Brunt joined other members from District 7090 to ride from St. David's, ON to Niagara-on-the-lake  and back again.  They helped raise over $32,000.00 for Polio Plus of the $60,000.00 District target. 

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Rotary has:

  • Reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project in the Philippines in 1979
  • Helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries
  • Contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide

Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
