World Polio Day

World Polio Day- October 24th marks the birthday of Jonas Salk, the leader of a team that created the first polio vaccine in 1955. The goal of World Polio Day is to ensure that no person ever experience the horrible effects of polio. Through awareness and fundraising for vaccinations, the goal of worldwide polio eradication is getting closer and closer.
Rotary International, through its PolioPlus program, has raised millions toward this goal with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and this is a time to realize that we still have to get the word out and raise more for complete eradication.
