Rotary members in Rochester are among millions reaching out on World Polio Day to raise awareness, funds and support to end polio – a vaccine preventable disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today. 
 
The Rotary Clubs of Rochester are sponsoring a World Polio Day event on October 24th to raise awareness and support to end polio - a vaccine preventable disease that still threatens children. We will celebrate the progress made towards polio eradication and to learn about Rotary's participation in this work. Complimentary refreshments will be served. 
 
  • WHAT:  World Polio Day Event
  • WHO: Public Invited
  • WHEN: October 24, 2017
  • WHERE: Cambria Gallery - 400 S Broadway, 5-7pm
Since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative nearly 30 years ago, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases a year to just 37 cases in 2016. To sustain this progress, and protect all children from polio, Rotary has committed to raising US$50 million per year over the next three years in support of global polio eradication efforts. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match Rotary’s commitment 2:1. Without full funding and political commitment, this paralyzing disease could return to previously polio-free countries, putting children everywhere at risk.  
 
“Gathering as concerned citizens to promote and support a shared cause furthers progress, promotes equality, and contributes to a better-connected society!” -Nick Traxler, Committee Chair - Public Image/Marketing for Rotary in Rochester 
 
Rotary has contributed more than US$1.7 billion to ending polio since 1985.
