World Polio Day is 24 October. On Tuesday 22 October, Rotary Club of North Hobart is hosting six neighbouring clubs to the Rotary Tasmania Group 3 Forum. On that evening we will welcome Tasmania's District 9830 End Polio Now Chair Marion Cooper and will present her with the donation of $1000 from our club and the other money we raise on the evening.
We recently joined with other Tasmanian Rotarians to raise funds for End Polio Now at a movie night. Thank you to the members of our club who came along in support.
We also look forward to polio survivor Merv Reed sharing his polio story on Tuesday 5 November.
Ending polio is one of our core goals and for every dollar we raise the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will donate $2 to the cause.
Rotary International President Mark Daniel Maloney has called on all clubs to do their part to end polio. https://endpol.io/regevent
Eradicating polio is a huge Rotary achievement and I am proud that Rotary Club of North Hobart is making the End Polio Now campaign a priority.
