My target 50 kms

I'm challenging myself to walk 50km throughout the month and raise vital funds that will help eradicate and prepare us for a Polio free world.

Two years ago I asked for sponsorship to prance around Albert Park Lake in ridiculous gold shorts, this year I'm wearing a very socially acceptable face mask & nipping around Northcote but for the same very good reason! Please sponsor me? 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.

Wow, time to up my sponsorship target again... thanks everyone!

Sunday 13th Sep
We've only got 2 Prahran Perennial Prancers in our team raising funds for End Polio Now but thanks to our generous sponsors we've hit the top of the teams' Leaderboard & I hope we stay there! If you haven't sponsored us yet, please do, every $1 multiplies up to $3 with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation matching grant so will you sponsor me/us today?? Thanks!! Susie

I’m in training!!

Wednesday 9th Sep
I walked to the fridge & back 4 times yesterday... I’ll be in great shape for my 50km in October! Please spread the word & help me find sponsors, Every $1 we raise turns into $3 with the Bill & Melinda  Gates Foundation matching us 2:1.  Only Pakistan & Afghanistan to go & then 3 years later the world can throw the polio calipers & vaccines away... 

Thank you to my Sponsors
