Prancing in the Park for Polio

Prancing in the Park for Polio

On Saturday 17th November, District 9800 came together to help take the fight right up to Polio with the very first End Polio Prance. Forty-one (41) Rotarians and Walter the Great (Polio) Dane pranced their way around Albert Park Lake in Melbourne on beautiful morning that raised $103,512.75 give or take a few cents.

  

 

Thanks to District & Foundation funds PLUS the matching 2:1 donation from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we were able to reach and exceed our target. Special thanks to the Rotary Clubs of Albert Park, Caroline Springs, Laverton Point Cook, Malvern, Melbourne South, North Balwyn, Prahran, Southbank, Woodend and Wyndham who all created teams of Prancers for the day and of course to all the individual Prancers and those who sponsored us.

Look out for the event next year on Saturday, 26th October 2019 when we hope to be prancing under the banner of End Polio for the last time.
