Rotary is an international community that brings together leaders who step up to take on the world’s toughest challenges, locally and globally. The eradication of polio is one of Rotary's longest standing and most significant efforts.
Along with our partners, Rotary has helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children against polio in 122 countries. We have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide and we won't stop until we end the disease for good.
 
 
Each club was challenged to create a way to help publicize World Polio Day on Oct. 24. The Rotary Club of Yellowknife needed to find a way to promote the day, while also staying within public health orders surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, which limits in-person events. 
President-Elect Celestino Oh took the lead on arranging for a projector to show slides on the side of one of the city's iconic buildings, the Explorer Hotel. That's where we hold our regular Thursday noon meetings.
Thanks to Pido Production Ltd. in Yellowknife for the great work in setting up a projector outdoors, as the first snows of winter start to fly up here in the subarctic!
The Club is also using the promotion to let the community know we are celebrating 50 years of service in Yellowknife. The slides will run for a week. 
We’re closer than ever to eradicating polio but we’re not done yet. We still need funds to continue immunizations and surveillance efforts. Your gift will get us closer to the finish line.
