Congratulations to every District 5890 Rotarian who participated in our Polio Day events on 11/21/15.  Thanks to all of you, we raised a total of almost $34,000 for Polio eradication between the Party at the Park/Bike Ride/Motorcycle Ride and the PolioPlus Society Dinner.  We also received considerable social media attention due to your efforts.   Our donations of $34,000 will multiply to $102,000 with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - which is enough to vaccinate 170,000 children with the Oral Polio Vaccine.
  It is critical that we continue to fund the Global Polio Eradication Effort - and that we earn the full $35 Million per year Gates Match - until we reach eradication - which will be three years after we reach zero Polio cases.  Thanks for all that you have done to move us one step closer to that goal!
  If you missed, the Polio Day events, please consider donating to PolioPlus on-line at Today.  Your gift will be matched $2 per $1 by the Gates Foundation.
