I'm challenging myself to walk 250km during the month of October and raise vital funds that will help to once and for all prepare us for a Polio-free world.
Poliomyelitis 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 immunising every child until transmission stops and the world is Polio-free.
That is why this October we are asking you to support Walk With Us for those that can’t.
A Polio-free world does not mean it’s over either. It requires updated vaccination policies, including appropriate containment of the Poliovirus in affected areas, the certification that Polio has been eradicated, and planning for the transition of knowledge and infrastructure to serve related health goals.
Be part of something special; be part of the end game strategy and help raise funds to make Polio history so that no child ever again suffers from paralytic Polio.
