Do you wish to be a part to save a life on the other side of the world?
Here's your chance!

Pedal Away Polio, organized by Rotaract Club of Taylor’s University College, is a fund-raising cycling expedition, aims to channel every dollar raised to Rotary International PolioPlus Fund. It is a Rotary’s volunteer arm of the global partnership dedicated to eradicate polio globally through the immunization campaigns.

What is Polio?
• A crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, polio (poliomyelitis) still strikes children mainly under the age of five in countries in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
• Polio can cause paralysis and sometimes death. Because there is no cure for polio, the best protection is prevention through immunization shots.

Polio might be a stranger to most of you all but with every effort you spent in making this event a success, a child can be protected against this disease for life with a vaccination for as little as US$0.60.
