Rotary Club International is working to end Polio disease. This morning local members of the club gathered at Eel River Valley schools for world polio day.
This morning from 7:30 – 8:00 rotary club members painted over 200 fingers purple at Redwood Prep School. Charging just $1 for each painted finger. In hopes to eradicate polio around the world.
Polio is a highly infectious disease that attacks the nervous system, mainly affecting young children. There is no cure, but it is preventable through vaccinations.
