The Clintonville Rotary will mark historic progress toward a polio-free world, while urging community support to end the paralyzing disease. Rotary members in Clintonville are among millions reaching out on World Polio Day to raise awareness, funds and support to end polio – a vaccine preventable disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today.
Since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative nearly 30 years ago, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases a year to just 37 cases in 2016 and only 7 so far in 2017.
All money raised will go directly to the Rotary International End Polio Now campaign.
Every dollar raised by Rotary is matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
