Team Dorrigo

We've challenged ourselves to walk, run or roll 10, 20, 50km or more throughout the month of October and raise vital funds that will help eradicate and prepare us for a Polio free world.

Polio is the world’s forgotten disease and something that should have been made history a long time ago. Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease. There is no cure, but there are safe and effective vaccines. The strategy to eradicate polio is therefore based on preventing infection by immunizing every child until transmission stops and the world is polio-free.

That is why in October we asked you to Walk With Us for those that can’t. 

You may have joined our Team Dorrigo,  walked alone or walk/run with your dog - End Polio Now will be the winner any which way you chose.

We challenged you to walk, run or roll 10, 20, 50km or more throughout the month and raise vital funds that will help eradicate and prepare us for a Polio free world. A polio-free world does not mean it’s over either. It requires updated vaccination policies, including the phased withdrawal of oral polio vaccines (OPV), appropriate containment of the poliovirus in facilities, the certification that polio has been eradicated, and planning for the transition of knowledge and infrastructure to serve other health goals. 

In recent months we have all had to find new ways to stay fit and healthy. Rotary’s Walk With Us End Polio Walk was a fitness challenge that was completed at the end October. 

You were part of something special: you Walked With Us this October for those that can’t. You were part of the end game strategy to raise funds to help make Polio history so that no child ever again suffers paralytic poliomyelitis.
