In honor of the 6th Annual Rotary International World Polio Day on October 24, all proceeds will go to support the work of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative who has partnered with Rotary International for the last 3 decades.


What is Polio? Most know it as polio virus. The virus is spread person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can attack the nervous system, and in some instances, lead to paralysis. Although there is no cure, there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and our partners use to immunize over 2.5 billion children worldwide.


For the last three decades, Rotary International and our members have worked with the global health community and our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) to rid the world of polio. When the partnership began in 1988, there were more than 350,000 cases of polio around the world. By 2017, that number had dropped to 22.

The international community recognizes 24 October as World Polio Day. The day highlights the world’s progress toward polio eradication and focuses attention on the final efforts to get there. To honor the day, Rotary hosts a livestream event where top experts provide a global status update on polio, international celebrities share personal stories and inspire viewers to get involved in polio eradication, and GPEI leaders discuss the impact of the partnership. Along with the livestream event, Rotary clubs around the world host thousands of events to commemorate the day and continue the fight to end polio.
