For more than 30 years, Rotary members around the world have contributed countless volunteer hours and more than $2.1 billion dollars toward eradicating polio worldwide. This initiative has been top priority for Rotary clubs worldwide and currently, only two countries remain on the list for polio eradication - Pakistan and Afghanistan. If efforts were stopped today, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children per year, within a 10 year period.
The Rotary Club of Kenora is planning a celebration for World Polio Day on Saturday, October 24. Make your donation or register for the Kenora Virtual Walk for World Polio Day. You are urged to make a $20.20 donation which would be matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, tripling your donation to an amount of $60.60.
We'll talk with Rotarian John Dahl on Wednesday's Q Morning Show.
