The Governor’s October Message: Imagine the day when we get to ZERO.

by DG Cindi O’Neil

Imagine the day when we get to ZERO. The day that Polio is gone forever. The day that we can say that no child, worldwide, will be crippled or die from this insidious virus for all the years to come.

Imagine how you will feel.

You will feel pride in Rotary, an organization that dared to get to ZERO. You will feel the honor of being part of an organization that had the grit to go the distance, to partner with world health organizations, and to raise the funds necessary to beat this disease forever.

Imagine too that you personally contributed to this success, every year, until the virus was gone. Imagine
your personal pride knowing you made the commitment to give to the PolioPlus fund annually, faithfully,
until Rotary and our world partners accomplished this goal.

Give now to the PolioPlus Fund. at  Commit to contributing at least $100 per year until this virus is gone. Join over 625 people in our Rotary District that have made the commitment too. They have been awarded the designation of PolioPlus Society Member.

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for over 30 years, and our goal of ridding the earth of this disease is in sight. Today Afghanistan and Pakistan are the only two countries where polio remains endemic. Imagine how you will feel when you know you helped acheive what many years ago seemed impossible: getting polio to ZERO.

Join the fight,
DG Cindi O’Neil
District Governor 2020-21
