What do Bill Gates Jr. and Rotary International have in common - both have joined forces to  eradicate Polio. To many of us Polio is no longer a threat and  many children today are not even aware of the nature of this disease.

In waging war on polio, Rotary, has become an indispensable partner to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. A trait Rotary shares with the Gates family is the ability and inclination to think big, come up with audacious goals, and then commit enormous resources to achieving them. Through our work together, we're looking forward to the days, when POLIO- a devastating disease that was once the source of so much fear for the families here in the United States, and that continues to terrorize families in other parts of the world - is completely banished from this earth.  The Gates Foundation has awarded $ 355 million to Rotary International's polio eradication effort. In response Rotary had committed to raising $ 200 million by June 30, 2012.  For the 2014-2015 year the Gates Foundation will be matching 2 to 1, any donations made to Polio.    For additional information or to make a donation please contact Past District Governor Karien Ziegler - Polio Challenge chair at
