The disease

Polio Patients need our support year round but, you can provide special support through the ride to end polio

Take part in the "Rotary Ride to End Polio" during this year’s El Tour De Tucson and help Eradicate Polio. Rotary devotes the money we raise to the most promising polio research and innovative methods of immunization of our time and we are always making progress.
Poliomyelitis (Polio) is a highly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5.  Most know it as poliovirus, or simply Polio.  The virus is spread person to person, typically through contaminated water. It attacks the nervous system, and in some instances, leads to paralysis and a lifetime of debilitating deformities. Although there is no cure, there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and our partners use to immunize millions of children worldwide.

The Rotary Foundation by Brenda Cressey, Trustee-Elect 2017-2021
The Rotary Foundation, with all its hopes and dreams, is because of each one of you.  The Foundation was the very reason why I joined and now remain a Rotarian.  In fact, the Foundation and its mission to eradicate Polio is the very reason why I joined Rotary 28 years ago.  
Today, I am extremely humbled by my appointment to serve a four-year term on the Board of Trustees of The Rotary Foundation from 2017-2021. There are 15 members, each nominated by the president-elect and then elected by the board in the year prior to taking office.  Four of the trustees are past presidents of RI.
Rotary District 5500 consists of 33,000 square miles, the entire area of Southern AZ south of the Phoenix metro area!
