Team Rotary RAAMs Polio in Race Across America

We are racing in Race Across America (RAAM) for the third year in a row in 2018 to raise awareness and money for Rotary’s PolioPlus campaign to eradicate Polio from the world. We have come a long way from 350,000 cases per year in 1985 to just 37 cases in 2016. We can’t stop now….our goal is ZERO cases!!! As I was racing in RAAM 2017 on Saturday morning June 24th at 3am in the very cold, hard, driving, miserable rain, I could have easily quit…..and then the thought came to mind that kids who contract Polio do not get to quit……they are in for LIFE!! Please help us put an end to this horrible disease. If you will send us your email address, we will keep you posted on our progress and on how you can join us in this effort for PolioPlus.
