In Support of Rotary's World Polio Day

by Kaj Pedersen

Polio Outreach’s Paul Jeganathan and BBRC President, Kaj Pedersen after Paul’s story at our club meeting

In 1985, Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle global polio eradication through the mass vaccination of children. Rotary has contributed more than $1.7 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. In addition, Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by donor governments to contribute more than $7.2 billion to the effort.

To support this effort and the upcoming Rotary EndPolio Day, BBRC held a meeting where we honored the work of Pakistan in its eradication efforts, promoted the B&MG Foundation’s celebration on October 24th and we also learned about polio survivor’s journey dealing with the impact of this virus – we appreciate Paul Jeganathan’s story and learning about Polio Outreach’s work.  There is still much to do, even with being close to stopping polio and you can learn more by clicking the yellow button.

The Rotary Foundation - Deadline for Pledge Commitments 12/2

Reply to Charles Sadler

72% of our club has made a pledge commitment or contribution to The Rotary Foundation!

As you have witnessed over the past several weeks, The Rotary Foundation is saving and changing lives. If you have not already done so, please help our club achieve our goal of 100% pledged by this Friday, December 2nd. Every dollar makes a difference in a life and provides leverage for matching funds!

It is as easy as completing pledge form, or simply bring a check to this Friday’s meeting – payable to The Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation Committee will again have a table at Friday’s meeting to assist you in completing your pledge.

Thank you!
Your Rotary Foundation Committee
