Walk with us
We have a three year goal to make good on a promise – will you be part of history and help make this happen?
Not into walking? That's fine, you can still join by donating to the cause here
Polio is the world’s forgotten disease and something that should have been made history a long time ago. It 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.
This October we are asking you to Walk With Us for those who 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.
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 also a fitness challenge that you can complete from October 1st to 31st to reach your target in a COVIDsafe way.
This year we are also celebrating the life of Past Rotary International President Sir Clem Renouf, who brought 1.2 million people together and made the promise to rid thw orld of Polio. If you'd like to know more about how Rotary and Sir Clem Renouf led the charge 30 years ago, please scroll to the video below.
Be part of something special: Walk With Us this October for those who 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.
See who is walking to make Polio history
