Proclamation by Mayor Lisa Post & Flag Raising
Today, 20 million people who would otherwise be paralyzed by polio are walking, and 1.5 million people who would otherwise have died are alive. At the end of the 1980s, more than 350,000 children were paralyzed by polio every year. Today, Rotary and its partners have reduced the incidence of polio by 99.9%. However, until we see the last of the poliovirus, eradication efforts must continue. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
Donate now at endpolio.org. Thanks to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, your contribution will be tripled, getting us even closer to a polio-free world.
Join us at Town Hall at 1 p.m. on Tuesday October 24th
