End Polio Now



End Polio Now has been Rotary International's primary campaign for more than 20 years. Formerly called "Polio Plus," the campaign is in its home stretch, working to eradicate the world's last known cases of Polio. Rotary teamed up with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, whose challenge matching grant funds will directly support immunization campaigns in the handful of less developed countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children.

Once the disease is eradicated, all the world's citizens will be safe from the spread of this insidious virus, and your contribution can assist in making that a reality.

The Ripon Rotary Club has an annual fundraising goal for End Polio Now, and our weekly "Spin the Wheel" campaign proceeds directly fund this effort.
