The eradication of polio is one of Rotary’s longest standing and most significant efforts. 
Glenfield Rotary Club will play its part by dedicating a club meeting dinner for members, family and friends to World Polio Day. The funds collected from our Sargeant session will be donated to End Polio Now. 
Our friends from Rotary Northcote are also joining us for dinner. If you're part of another Rotary Club and your club doesn't have any plans for Polio Day, please join us. If you're not part of Rotary, you can come along as well. Bring your family and friends. It is also a good opportunity to meet new people and learn what Rotary is all about. Spread the word and help us #endpolio for good.
Poliomyelitis (polio) is a paralyzing and potentially fatal disease that still threatens children in some parts of the world. It is incurable, but completely vaccine-preventable.
Since 1988, we have seen a worldwide reduction in polio cases of 99.9%. Last year we only saw wild polio cases in three countries. Until polio is eradicated, all countries remain at risk of outbreaks.
Rotary’s goal is to raise $50 million per year over the next three years to help provide for the vaccines, transport and materials needed in the fight against polio. Every $1 we raise for polio will be matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
With your help, we can end polio for good.
