Rotary members in Surrey-Newton will host Polio Walk at Newton Athletic Park on Sunday, June 11, 2023 from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm to raise awareness and funds to support the eradication of polio — a vaccine-preventable disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today.

Since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases to just 5 cases in 2021. Rotary has contributed more than $2.4 billion to ending polio.
