Let the #stepbystep challenge begin!

everobearIn 1986, when I was only 22 years old, The Rotary Polio Campaign was launched. This was the year I joined The Rotary Club of Bradford West.

It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

You may know that we are at the most critical stage or eradicating polio. After being so close to the finish line, some might feel we are taking a step backwards.

I don’t believe that Rotarians around the world will allow this to happen so now is the time to push on harder than ever before. We MUST move forward toward polio eradication. And it’s easy to help!

On Sunday 28th May 2017, I will be running the Edinburgh Marathon. The marathon will be a big challenge for me as a non-runner, but there is a bigger challenge that needs your help & support.

It will take approximately 50,000 steps to get me to the finish line. The Challenge is to make every single step count.

A step costs £1 to buy and I have 50,000 to sell. Each step will bring polio eradication (and me) closer to the finish line! Did you know that for a very limited period only £1 = £3?

Every £1 raised will attract a £2 contribution from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, effectively tripling the amount raised for Polio. 2017 will be the last year the Gates Foundation will provide this fundraising opportunity so it vitally important to attempt this Marathon in the particular year.
