Ralph’s Rickshaw Ride for Polio – June 1 – June 22

 

Ralph Zuke, Rickshaw Driver with RI President Ian H.S. Risely in the Barcalounger

Please join us on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 to meet Ralph Zuke, President of the Rotary Club of Fairview Heights, Illinois. Ralph is riding his Barcalounger Rickshaw for 22 days, from St. Louis, Missouri to the Rotary International Convention in Toronto, Ontario. That’s one day for each of the 22 preventable cases of Polio that occurred in 2017. Ralph is riding 1000 miles to eradicate Polio because even one case is too many.

You can follow Ralph on Facebook at Ralph’s Rickshaw Ride for Polio.

Ralph’s goal is to raise $22,000 to End Polio Now!! If you would like to support Ralph’s efforts, you can make a donation at the District 6510 website: http://www.rotary6510.org/end-polio-now.php or Ralph will be accepting donations on June 13.
