Good Day, District 6450 Rotarians.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the clubs and members for supporting PIONEERS FOR POLIO!  On behalf of District Governor Chuck Corrigan, District Rotary Foundation Chairperson Rachel Ossyra and myself, THANK YOU for exceeding our expectations!  A clear and strong message has been sent that Rotary International District 6450 supports Rotary’s pledge to the children of the world.  District 6450 Rotarians support the Polio effort AND our future Rotary International President Jennifer Jones! 

End Polio Sneakers
You were invited to participate and you did.  You are the superheroes of the District!  We exceeded our goal thanks to the donations of 38 clubs and 331 individual Rotarians. With matching from the Gates Foundation and all of our local matching included, we raised over $124,000 for End Polio Now in the month of October!  Never have we had such a successful campaign for Polio.  WELL DONE!

In 1985, Rotary made a pledge to the children of the world that we would eradicate Polio from the face of the planet.  Today in our District and around the world, Rotarians pursue that goal aggressively and passionately.  It may not be easy; it will take time and money.  We will stay the course.  Your donations have made it just that much easier.  

On behalf of District leadership, thank you for what you do each and every day in your communities and for people you have never met around the world.  Daily, you make our District proud. 

In gratitude,
