Third Annual Polio Walk

 

The Third Annual End Polio Now Walk, sponsored by the Rock Falls, Sterling Noon, Twin Cities Sunrise, and Dixon Rotary Clubs will be held on Saturday, October 13 at Centennial Park in Rock Falls. Registration will begin at 8:15 a.m. There is no fee to participate. Donations will be accepted and with a $20 donation you can get an End Polio Now Tshirt, while supplies last. The walk will step off around 9 a.m. and will proceed along the Hennepin Canal bike path to the walking bridge which will cross the Rock River. Upon crossing the river and reaching Sterling, the water station will be set up at the gazebo, which will also be the turn around point (route is approx. 2.5 miles)

 

The public is invited to attend, will all donations collected and given to the End Polio Foundation at Rotary International. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation then triples that amount donated. We encourage and invite all to attend to help us eradicate Polio.

 

Also on display from 8 a.m. to Noon will be the Iron Lung.
