I am running to benefit Rotary International's Polio Plus program. In conjunction with the World Health Organization (and the Gates Foundation), this program is backing the world wide effort to eradicate the disease/scourge of polio from the planet. This is being accomplished by attempting to give the polio vaccine series to every child in the world! We are very close to the goal at this point but further support of the campaign is needed to succeed. The "Plus" part of the program means that other diseases are being targeted also.
