Rotary Club Working to Eradicate Polio

Today at The Wichita Falls City Council Meeting, The Wichita Fall's Rotary Club pledged their support for World Polio Day.

The nationwide Rotary Club has been working for the last 26 years to end the crippling childhood disease, Polio.

Southwest Rotary President Tom Key said the three rotary clubs in Wichita Falls are all heavily involved in several world-wide projects to raise money to help eradicate the highly contagious disease.

With the $8 billion investment from the U.S., investments from other countries and the hard work from millions of workers, some believe Polio can be the first eradicated disease of the 21st century.

World Polio Day is October 24th,2011.
