October 24th is World Polio Day!

World Polio Day is a time for Rotarians all over the world to raise awareness about our efforts to eradicate polio for good.

Join us by hosting an event in your community. Download the toolkit to help you start planning your event.

Not sure what to do for World Polio Day? Here are a few ideas:

  • Host a gathering for friends and club members to watch the Online Global Update.
  • Organize a fundraiser and invite guests to experience what it’s like to vaccinate children by viewing Rotary’s virtual reality film, “Two Drops of Patience.” (Download Rotary’s VR app to your Apple or Android device.)
  • Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper about the importance of ending polio. Send it to the letters or opinion page editor for consideration.
  • Share information about Rotary’s efforts to eradicate polio on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.


The toolkit’s resources can help you every step of the way. Don’t forget to tell us how you’re observing World Polio Day.
