BHBL Rotary Polio Plunge
Please donate to help eradicate Polio. We’re almost there!
- Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.
- As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we’ve helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.
- It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.
- If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
The polar plunge is staged annually usually on January 1st in Lake George to publicize this cause.
