This is your opportunity to help Rotary International continue its fight against polio eradication. With just 11 confirmed cases so far in 2017, the world is on the brink of eradicating polio, a vaccine-preventable disease that once paralyzed hundreds of thousands of children each year. Please consider participating in the Decorah Rotary Club's “Dine Out for Polio” event on World Polio Day, designated as next Tuesday October 24. Dine at one of the local participating restaurants that day (Pizza Hut, Pizza Ranch, La Rana, Don Jose, and Magpie) and let them know you are doing it for World Polio Day. Those restaurants have graciously offered to donate towards the cause.
Rotary clubs worldwide are hosting events in conjunction with the Fifth Annual World Polio Day celebration. This year, the event will be co-hosted by Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and held at the Foundation headquarters in Seattle. The program will feature an update on the global fight to end polio and an array of guest speakers, celebrities, and public health experts.
