Rotary Lunch Program: Bill Berg Foundation Update

Last week, Kyle gave us an update on the club's foundation. Part of his presentation included an amazing video of Bill and Melinda Gates, talking to a group of students who'd received scholarships from them. Here's a link to the video:

Cort Walks For Polio


Covid is not my first pandemic. Polio permanently paralyzed my right leg in 1954 during a global polio pandemic that paralyzed over 30,000 children per year in the US. Mostly children. Parents lived in fear that their child would be next. Public swimming pools, movie theaters, and bowling alleys were closed. There was no vaccine.


In 1985, Rotary pledged to wipe out polio forever. There were 350,000 cases per year in 125 countries. Today there are less than 200 cases in just 2 countries. I am volunteering with Rotary to bring that number to zero.  


Covid spread from a few cases in a Chinese province to a global pandemic in a matter of months. Polio can come roaring back too. It is just a plane flight away!


I plan to walk 100 miles before November 15th to raise money for Rotary's PolioPlus.
