Millbrae Rotarians commemorated World Polio Day together, with a reminder that we are "this close" to eradicating this horrible disease forever.

October 24, World Polio Day, is an opportunity for the global polio eradication community to renew its promise to every child at-risk from this preventable, paralyzing disease and to realize a polio-free world for future generations.

Rotary clubs world-wide have been instrumental, with the Gates Foundation, in eradicating polio. In 2007, the Gates Foundation gave The Rotary Foundation a challenge grant for polio eradication. Rotarians have raised $228.7 million toward the challenge.
