World Polio Day is 24 October. You can help make history in our global fight to end polio. Join others from around the world for a live-streamed global status update with Rotary’s global partners, celebrity ambassadors, like Ziggy Marley, and polio survivors including inspirational athlete Minda Dentler. Tune in at 18:30 Chicago time (find your local time) to learn about what Rotary has already accomplished, and what you can do to join our campaign. Here are some ways to mark World Polio Day, raise awareness in your community, and take us one step closer to ending this disease forever.
  • Host a viewing party for the live-streamed event with your friends, family, and community members. Share your pictures and videos using the hashtag #worldpolioday and watch the map light up as you add your voice.
  • Organize a fundraiser. Every dollar that Rotary commits to polio eradication will be matched with two dollars from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation!
  • Share our World Polio Day graphics on Facebook and Twitter to show the world we are “this close” to a polio-free world.
