Area Rotary Clubs To Host 2011 Polio Walk in Bellevue

Area Rotary Clubs are working in conjunction with the Village of Bellevue to host the 2011 Rotary "Walk For Those Who Can't" on Saturday, May 7, 2011. Proceeds from the walk will be used to fight worldwide eradication of polio.

Polio (also called poliomyelitis) is a contagious, historically devastating disease that was virtually eliminated from the Western hemisphere in the second half of the 20th century. Although polio has plagued humans since ancient times, its most extensive outbreak occurred in the first half of the 1900s before the vaccination, created by Jonas Salk, became widely available in 1955.

At the height of the polio epidemic in 1952, nearly 60,000 cases with more than 3,000 deaths were reported in the United States alone. However, with widespread vaccination, wild-type polio, or polio occurring through natural infection, was eliminated from the United States by 1979 and the Western hemisphere by 1991.

Unfortunately, polio still infects millions worldwide. Rotary International, along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are working diligently to eradicate this disease across the globe.

This 5k walk will begin at Bellin College at 9:00 am. Registration will begin at 8:00 am. Cost of registration is $15 for adults and $5 for children. Tax deductible Donations to eradicate polio are also welcome.

Organizers of the event expect about 250 walkers.

For more information on the event, and to download a walk registration form visit the Green Bay Rotary Club's website at: http://www.greenbayrotary.com/html/walk_for_polio/
