Rotary International (RI) has been a major partner in eradicating Polio worldwide. In 1985, when Polio was infecting over 1000 children per day, Rotary International set a goal to eradicate this childhood disease. RI’s goal to end Polio is almost realized. After immunizing 2 billion children worldwide, RI and the Springfield Township Rotary Club continue to make a difference by supporting this cause… soon Polio will no longer be a threat to any child on our planet! The Springfield Township Rotary Club was proud to present a check for $2500 to the visiting District Governor for this effort.
