Today was Polio Plus Awareness at the #RotaryClubofRoseville.
"Motorcycle Bob" Mutchler, a polio survivor and avid spokesman for Rotary International's Polio Plus fight against this deadly disease, came to speak to our club!
Bob described his 30-year, 1.3 million mile motorcycle riding effort to raise awareness of polio around the world. Polio is nearly eradicated worldwide thanks to Rotary International's nearly $500-Million effort with the World Health Organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and others.
At the close, Eric Denio - yes, that #Denios, presented the Roseville Rotary FLUSHING POLIO OFF THE EARTH toilet. Club members have the option of buying a $20.00 "insurance policy" against having the toilet and sign placed in their yard, or pay a $25.00 "removal fee".
All proceeds of this fanciful and provocative effort will go toward Rotary's Polio Plus campaign. You are welcome to join us on this quest. And, thank you "Motorcycle Bob" for telling your story.
