End Polio Now
On Saturday, 23 October, fourteen people representing our local Rotary Clubs celebrated the efforts by individuals in all 4 Clubs of ADG Dot Jeger's area within District 7770. Bernie Riedel, District 7770 End Polio Now co-chair, led the 1,000 mile Challenge initiative.
A few undertook the challenge on an individual basis and others either set lesser personal goals or worked as a team toward 1,000 miles. All efforts were important to this unique way to raise awareness and money to eradicate polio from the planet.
The Sunset Rotary representative in the photos is Toney Mathews, who completed the 1,000 mile challenge as an individual on 11 October. The photo with the banner was taken first and the second photo taken after a relaxing one mile walk on the beach to relive individual stories. Thank you Sunset Rotary for your support and encouragement.
