Still time to make a donation to our Rotary Club of St. Catharines Lakeshore Team.
On October 24th, 2020 the "Participate for Polio" event took place simultaneously on both sides of the border. Canadian Rotarians rode from the Rainbow Bridge to Queenston Heights in two waves, while their American counterparts rode from Niagara Falls, N.Y. to Lewiston.
Two members from our club (Beth Fleeton and Elaine Richard) cycled at the event "carrying the St. Catharines Lakeshore banner". Speaking to riders and the media at the end of the rides, DG Frank Adamson said the local Rotary Clubs had already raised $55,000 to $60,000 by Saturday morning. But including funds raised across the river and matching funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a special donation of $40000 from a Rotarian,  upwards of half a million dollars was raised for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign.
Congratulations Beth and Elaine - and to all the Rotarians and friends who participated and donated.
Donations will be accepted until the end of November for Beth and Elaine via this link to our Rotary Club of St. Catharines Lakeshore Team
