End Polio Now - Rotary's Number One Goal

Rotary's priority project is to eradicate Polio worldwide. From over 350,000 cases every year in the late 80's to less than 40 in 2016, great progress has been made. But we aren't there yet -- not until there are no cases worldwide. The Rotary Club of Le Sueur, with community support via our fundraisers, has been a leader in Rotary District 5960 (parts of MN and WI) in donating to the End Polio Now campaign. In the July 2015-June 2016 period, our club was third out of 63 clubs in financial contribution to this program. Because of this giving, this crippling disease can be and is being prevented. You can find information on the work of Rotary and our partner organizations to End Polio Now at www.polioeradication.org.
