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.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
