End Polio Now

Rotary International and its partners, including the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, has reduced polio cases by 99 percent worldwide since its first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.

Rotary is close to eradicating polio.  A portion of the Ride proceeds will be donated to make a global impact and protect children against polio forever.  For as little as $0.60, a child can be protected against this crippling disease for life. In addition, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation matches every dollar that is raised through Rotary Charities to eradicate polio.


Local Charity

In addition to End Polio Now, the Ride will benefit three local charities – Loaves & Fishes Community Services, Naperville Responds For Veterans and SamaraCare.

Loaves & Fishes Community Services has a vision is to end hunger in our community. Their mission is to provide food and leadership in the community by uniting and mobilizing resources to empower people to be self-sufficient..

Naperville Responds For Veterans assists Veterans and their families in need by raising donations of money, building materials and professional labor and coordinates the process of repairing, building and donating homes.

SamaraCare is a provider, educator and advocate for progressive mental health counseling in Naperville.
