Members of Lewisville Morning Rotary Club
Volunteered on World Polio Day (Oct 24th) to
Pedal for Polio at the Shops of Highland Village
raising funds for End Polio Now.
Rotary International has had a 35 year effort to eradicate polio world wide. As a result of the efforts of clubs like ours, Rotary International, the CDC, WHO and the Gates Foundation, polio has been eradicated in all but two countries; Afghanistan and Pakistan. Our team joined several other teams throughout our district in North Central Texas to raise funds to eradicate polio in those final two countries. Thank you to team members Maithen Fluhrer, Mark Smith, Samba Sey, Marilyn Pokorny and John Pokorny. Each has set up donation sites for members of the community to donate on their behalf. To donate click below.
This is just one of the events the club has hosted to raise funds to End Polio. Last week end we participated in the Hero's Funday Car Wash and a portion of the funds raised in the November 6th Wine and Dine Fundraiser will be contributed to End Polio. Our goal as a club is to raise an average of $30 per member to End Polio or over $800.
Why do we do it? Because no member wants to another child anywhere in the world to suffer from the debilitating and often fatal disease.
