October is Polio Awareness Month and there is a delicious way to join the Rotary fight against polio. You can place your order for pies at our very next meeting. If you got one last year, you know they were perfect for your Thanksgiving table.
Ending a disease is a massive effort. Rotary, with our partners, is closer than ever to eradicating polio but we aren’t done yet. Funds are still needed to continue immunizations and surveillance efforts.
We can make a difference – one pie at a time.
This fundraiser comes at an important time in the fight to eradicate polio, which would be only the second human disease to be eradicated, after smallpox. Case numbers of the disease have never been lower, and only two countries (Afghanistan and Pakistan) have shown cases of the wild polio virus. However, a funding gap puts this historic progress at risk.
