No child anywhere should suffer from polio, a completely preventable disease. Help us celebrate World Polio Day 2016 by contributing to this campaign.

Ningún niño en ningún lugar debe sufrir de la polio, una enfermedad completamente prevenible. Ayúdenos a celebrar el Día Mundial de la Polio 2016, contribuyendo con esta campaña.

Helen Hankins and Mike Mauser would like to honor the memory of polio survivor Sarah Sweetwater,who did so much to promote the fight against polio and to recognize the Centennial of the Rotary Foundation. (Read about Sarah here: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/rgj/obituary.aspx...) They will do this by promoting World Polio Day during a 500 mile pilgrimage in Spain.

Helen Hankins y Mike Mauser quieren honrar la memoria de la poliomielitis superviviente Sarah Sweetwater, que hizo tanto para promover la lucha contra la polio. Lo harán para promover el Día Mundial Contra la Polio durante una peregrinación 500 millas en España .

Mike and Helen have started the campaign by donating $1,000 and they will also cover all trip expenses and overhead costs for the campaign, so that every dollar you donate will go directly to Rotary's PolioPlus campaign where it will be matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Mike y Helen han iniciado la campaña con su propia donación de $1,000 y también cubrirán todos sus gastos de viaje y los gastos de la campaña para que cada dólar que se done vaya directamente a la campaña PolioPlus de Rotary donde será igualada $2 a $1 por el Fundación Bill y Melinda Gates.

Helen and Mike will provide updates [LINK] as they prepare for their pilgrimage and during their journey from France, across northern Spain to the cathedral of Santiago de Compestela. The fundraising campaign ends the day before World Polio Day, which is October 24. All contributors will be invited to participate in a short ceremony in honor of Sarah Sweetwater, followed by a talk about the pilgrimage.
