Rotary District 9800 has raised over $33,000 this month so far, which – once the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation adds its matching promise – will become around $100,000!
Robert Fisher would like to thank the many Rotary Melbourne sponsors who supported his 250km October walking commitment by donating over $5,000. To date, Robert has walked over 285km, and there is still time to add to this total: visit https://www.rotarywalkwithus.org/fundraisers/robertfisher.
Yesterday (Sunday), the final End Polio Now walk organised by District took place – under the leadership of Jane Pennington – from Studley Park Boathouse to Dight Falls and back.
Though the scourge of polio has been 99% eliminated globally, it’s vital that we keep up the pressure of education and vaccination, especially in the few territories where cases are still to be found.
