End Polio Walk

On Saturday morning, Oct. 24,  50 Rotarians and Friends walked the Duke East Campus to promote awareness of Rotary’s “End Polio Now” campaign.
Other clubs joining us were Southwest Rotary, Sunrise Rotary, E-Rotary, and Interact at NCSSM.  Afterwards, we had good fellowship at Mad Hatter’s for coffee and breakfast.  Rotarians from across the world and the USA joined us in this walk — India, South Korea, United Kingdom, New York City, Atlanta, and Hawaii.  We are expecting more information about others around the world who were walking for End Polio Now.
