The Ride to Eradicate Polio has been moved to Monday, October 24!

Join us on World Polio Day (Monday October 24) for the Ride to Eradicate Polio in Harrisburg. We will be meeting at 4:00 p.m. at Leadership Harrisburg (3211 North Front Street) and taking off for an hour-long scenic bike ride at 5:00. We’ll return to the LHA office before sunset and convene at a restaurant nearby for congratulatory refreshments. PDG Una Martone will lead our group along an especially beautiful (and flat!) route with just a few road crossings. You can bring your bicycle or walk or run along the riverfront.

All participants get a purple Ride to Eradicate Polio t-shirt, the “I went the distance” sticker, and special “purple pinkie” cookies made by Tanya’s Cookie Boutique.

Free parking is plentiful in the LHA parking lot. Please look for us near the back entrance to the building. 

If you can’t join us on October 24, we invite you to plan a Ride to Eradicate Polio in your neighborhood. We will ship you your t-shirts and stickers. Please reach out to office@rotary7390.org to request that these items be sent to you. Take pictures and share them on social media. Use the hashtags #endpolionow and #ridetoeradicatepolio.

There couldn’t be a better time for this fundraiser. The first case of polio in the United States in nearly a decade was detected in New York this year. Your donation helps Rotary, and its partners, reach every child with the polio vaccine. Thanks to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, your contribution will be tripled, getting us even closer to a polio-free world.

Thank you for your support!
