World Polio Day

World Polio Day

Friday, 24. October 2014 (All day)

World Polio Day is quickly approaching on October 24th. This is a chance for Rotarians, clubs, and districts across the world to come together to fight polio. There are many ways you could mark the day. Dedicate your club meeting to focus on Rotary’s work to end polio that week. Community fundraisers on/around World Polio Day are great a way to raise awareness of our cause in the general public.  You could take the opportunity to remind government officials to support the global commitment to a polio free world- Rotary’s top priority. On World Polio Day, wear your End Polio Now pin and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

This year, a End Polio Now: Make History Today Livestream event, including a global update on the current status of polio eradication, will take place on World Polio Day- 24 October 2014—at 18:30pm CDT and will be streamed live at endpolionow.org. I encourage your club/district to have a viewing party of the event, or incorporate it into your existing World Polio Day plans. The archived video will be available following the live program. Additional event details may be found at endpolionow.org.
