5 days to go!
October 03, 2017
Polio is a terrible disease but is close to being eliminated from the earth! Through the efforts of the World Health Organization, Rotary International, and the Gates Foundation, a global immunization against polio has been carried out every year. Polio is now only endemic in 2 countries as of last year (Pakistan and Afghanistan). With further effort (and financing), I'm sure we are going to succeed. I have been a member of Rotary International for close to 30 years and have followed and contributed to Rotary's fantastic support of this world wide effort. I'd like to be a part of the celebration when the world is declared polio free and you can be too by supporting my marathon run and the PolioPlus program through your donations!
