Polio Eradication Update
 
Zero is the Magic Number!   The three-year Countdown to History starts after the final Wild Polio case. Today, Rotary restarted the count with the report of two new cases. Our Club Member and District Governor, John Hathaway, has set a goal of raising $200,000 this year ,which when matched will total $1 million. To date we have raised $167,000 toward the $200,000 goal. At our Thursday Club Meeting, many members made a pledge toward meeting this goal. If you would like to help, send your check to the Rotary Foundation, noting it for Polio.
 
Rotary is committed to raise $50 Million (including Rotarian, public, and DDF donations) to be matched by $100 mil from the Gates Foundation - for each of the next two years - for a total of $300 million for the Global Polio Eradication effort
