The Rotary Club of Reno, Midtown has put together a team to run 133 miles on trails up in Tahoe spanning through two days and with over 26,000 ft. in elevation gain all to raise funds to help eradicate polio. Our good friend Bill Gates has agreed to match every dollar we raise for Polio eradication 2 to 1. That means for every dollar you donate, 3 dollars goes towards vaccinating populations and controlling outbreaks. With your help, we will eradicate polio in our lifetimes!
The Cost to vaccinate a single child from polio for life is $0.60 Download the Pledge form PDF.
All donations are due by July 19th, 2018
Thank you! Phase one of this project was funded and completed. A phase two is being discussed.
As families go through court proceedings, children are exposed to an emotionally challenging situation. Our goal is to create welcoming and friendly reading rooms, just outside of the courtroom, to offer children a refuge from the emotional trauma of their family legal proceedings, where they can feel safe and comfortable.
This will be done through redecorating the existing spaces to add murals, bookshelves, tables & chairs, books, games, toys and art. It is hoped that these reading rooms will eventually be an outlet for volunteers to come read to the children during their family legal proceedings.
With your help, this project will provide a positive impact to our community.
