Swimarathon to End Polio NOW

EndPolioOn Sunday, February 12th The Perth Rotary Club is teaming up with the Perth Stingrays  again this year to raise donations for our Polio Plus campaign. Polio Plus supports polio immunization activities and research to end polio. To date, Swimarathon has raised more than $1 Million and immunized 1.7 Million children. The actual swim is at the Perth Indoor Pool from 9 am to 10 am. Both the Stingrays and Rotarians will be seeking pledge sheet donations for the event. Please note that Charitable Tax Receipts will be issued for all donations of $20 or more.  Download the Rotary Swimarathon Form 2017.

Since 1988 there has been a worldwide reduction of Polio cases by 99.9%.  With your help we can eliminate polio globally. There are now only 3 countries with active polio cases:

Country 2014 2015 Current
Afghanistan 28 20 12
Pakistan 306 54 16
Nigeria 06 00 04
