Given by 10 generous donors in 9 weeks

Ride Auckland Transport (AT) Train and Ferry Network to help raise money to end polio globally with Rotary International.


Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.

We've helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. So far, Rotary has contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide.

Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

October is Polio month with World Polio Day occurring on Saturday 24 October 2020. We want you to be part of the end polio journey too!

On Friday 23 October 2020 Rotary club members of Districts 9920/9910 (dressed in red End Polio apparel) will ride the Auckland Transport (AT) Train and Ferry Network and be present at each train station or ferry terminal to raise awareness about ending polio globally.

Please donate to Rotary's End Polio programme!
