Join The Rotary Club of Kennedale at Burger Box on World Polio Day to raise awareness, funds, and support to end polio, a vaccine-preventable disease. When the initiative was launched more than 30 years ago, polio paralyzed 1,000 children every day. Great progress has been made since then, with cases dropping by 99.9%.
With polio nearly eradicated, we must sustain this progress and continue to reach every child with the polio vaccine. Rotary has committed to raising $50 million each year; and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged to match that 2-to-1, up to $150 million.
“This is a way the entire community can enjoy good food and fellowship and help make a difference in the fight to keep Polio eradicated! Just remember to drop your Burger Box receipt in our Polio Jar at the register.” Laurie Sanders
Rotary has contributed more than $1.9 billion to ending polio since 1985.
