My Activity Tracking
My target 350 kms
I'm challenging myself to walk 350km 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 assist in raising 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 from 1-31 October to reach a target in a COVID-safe way.
