Despite the global effort to eradicate polio myelitis that launched in 1988, this dreadful disease is still endemic in two countries (Afghanistan and Pakistan). It primarily affects children and can cause lifetime paralysis and even death.

The local Rotary Clubs in Corpus Christi began an effort in 2018 to join together to raise money and awareness to end polio.  The annual event is held the end of October around  World Polio Day, October 24th.

This year, we will be Pounding the Pavement for Polio, October 18 – 25, 2020.  Choose when, where, and how far you walk.  Upload your photo afterwards to be included in our unique video.

Join individuals from all over the globe in this effort.  We are in this together, and together we will End Polio Now.

No medals will be given.
