After more than 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are now very close to eradicating polio, to making history and to changing the world. We are so close to ending polio—
all we need is you.


Shown in photo presenting the most recent cheque from Semiahmoo Rotary are: Kirk Mitchell - Club President 2011-12, Cas Parel - Assistant Governor District 5050, Jane Helton - District Governor District 5050 and Doug Waymark - Club Treasurer.

The biggest obstacles to eradicating polio are the underfunding of the global initiative

and insufficient political commitment from the remaining polio-affected countries. Rotary International believes the primary source for additional funds can and should be governments of polio-free industrialized countries. Your contribution through Rotary will help ensure that we keep doing our part to get the job done.
