Dear Friend of Rotary District 7680:
With my family’s involvement in Rotary and with mom as our motivation, Karen and I have decided to climb Mt Kilimanjaro this summer with Rotary as part of its effort to eradication Polio worldwide.
Rotary has been fighting Polio since 1985. Between 1985 and 2000 Rotary immunized more than 500 million children. In 1988 there were 125 Polio-Endemic countries. In 1994 the Americas were certified Polio-Free. In 2002 Europe was certified Polio-Free and today there are only 2 Polio-Endemic countries remaining.
This push to finally eradicate Polio is most difficult and costly but to fail now would invite a Polio resurgence. Each climber commits to raising a minimum of $3,000 each and we would love for you to join us in the effort to end Polio worldwide.
We are funding our own way to climb Kilimanjaro so every dollar you donate will go directly to Rotary International’s Push to End Polio. You gift is tax deductible.
We would also love for you to leave us a reply with good wishes – or even to tell us we are a bit crazy.
100% of all funds raised will go to The Rotary Foundation’s PolioPlus Fund for Rotary International’s END POLIO NOW campaign. Thank you again for your generous support!! You will receive a confirmation of your donation directly from The Rotary Foundation.
