With World Polio Day on 24 October 2019, our Club is providing support for PolioPlus with a contribution of $1,000 which our DG Tania will take with her to the Sydney Ride the Trains fundraiser where Rotarians and friends ride together on the train for a time of their own determination as a fellowship activity and mix with Rotarians from other Clubs in the Greater Sydney train network – 195 stations - help raise $1 million. https://rotarydistrict9675.org/Stories/train-ride-to-end-polio?fbclid=IwAR2Uot_njoLZ5B9E3o6HoUFDy93giZpnXvNDQtEYFvnsdJ7U1rU1x87ExH0

PolioPlus is the most ambitious programme in Rotary's history, as the volunteer arm of the global partnership dedicated to eradicating polio. For more than 30 years Rotary has led the private sector in the global effort to rid the world of this crippling disease.

I spoke at the Cromwell College assembly this week about Polio, Rotary's role in helping rid the world of its devastation & the importance of vaccinations - which is quite relevant with the outbreak of measles in New Zealand.
