North Bay Rotary, North Bay-Nipissing Rotary and Rotaract and family and friends participated in Rotary’s World Polio Day – October 24th - joining the fight to completely eradicate this disease.
Participants walked from the Rotary Gazebo to The Grande Event Centre, wearing red “End Polio Now” ponchos to promote the awareness of Polio. Proceeds from the walk will be going towards the cause. 
It has been an incredible day here in Rotary District 7010. Clubs have been sharing there walk pictures. At best estimate we had 1700 purchased and people walking with friends, family to show the support today to #endpolionow #droptozero #WorldPolioDay #district7010. Check out the walk photos posted to our District FB page.

Thank you, Rotary
UNICEF and the World Health Organization have produced a short video thanking Rotary and its members for protecting the world’s children against polio for more than 30 years.
Every dollar you have raised and every drop of vaccine you have helped administer have brought us one step closer to a polio-free world. This video is a powerful reminder of the positive impact Rotarians have made around the world.

Rotary releases a new online giving platform
Making a contribution to end polio just got easier thanks to Rotary's newly upgraded online giving platform. You can now make a gift quickly and securely from your computer, tablet or smartphone. The new platform allows you to make donations in your local currency and, when  you're signed in to My Rotary, keeps track of your giving record.
Through the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, any contribution you make will be tripled, increasing Rotary's ability to help vulnerable children around the world be polio-free.
