Rotary fundraise to eradicate polio

Rotary members and volunteers Marshall Woodward, Angela Quinn, Ron Murgatroyd, Peter Lucena and Kingston Hull were in the centre of Waiuku with a sausage sizzle fundraiser last weekend.
Polio is a highly contagious disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system resulting in the majority of cases with severe paralysis to the limbs.
Internationally, Rotary’s aim is to eliminate Polio world wide. World Polio Day is celebrated on 24 October every year and to date, there have only been 11 cases of the wild polio virus reported in the world, and 56 cases of circulating vaccine derived polio cases.
