My Activity Tracking
My target 120 kms
I'm challenging myself to walk, run or roll 10, 20, or 50km throughout the month 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 this October we are asking you to Walk With Us for those that can’t.
We are challenging you to walk, run or roll 10, 20, or 50km 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 is a fitness challenge that you can complete from October 1st to 31st to reach your target in a COVIDsafe way.
Be part of something special: Walk With Us this October for those that can’t. Be part of the end game strategy and raise funds to help make Polio history so that no child ever again suffers paralytic poliomyelitis.

Still walkingSunday 11th Oct
Plugging awayTuesday 6th Oct The weather has been so changeable from hot to wet that getting consistent kilometres has been difficult. I am still getting some completed every day and occasionally some decent distances. Having the car conk out and need a service gave me a great opportunity to push the distance today before the wet set in. It is early days yet but I hope to gather a few more donations so don’t be shy. It is for a good cause and even small amounts are appreciated. They all add up. Share
