DISTRIC 7360 END POLIO NOW                             PROGRAMS

Started in 1985, Rotary’s PolioPlus program set out to eradicate polio from the planet at a time when annual cases of the disease numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Today, thanks to the efforts of Rotary and its global partners, we are on the verge of certifying the world polio free! Completion of this mission will mark only the second time in human history that a disease has been eradicated. Previously, only smallpox has been eliminated. Once complete, the annual worldwide savings in medical care is estimated at $1.5B US.

  • Join Pedals Out Polio


Saturday, June 2023       

The purpose of each ride is to raise funds and awareness for Rotary’s Global Polio Eradication Campaign. Each ride starts and finishes at Mifflinburg Community Park, 211 N. 5th St, Mifflinburg, PA. 

Family Ride: Bike riders are encouraged to ride a part or all of the Mifflinburg – Lewisburg Rail Trail. This 9 mile off-road bike trail is suitable for children and adults that prefer a flat and leisurely bike ride.  This ride will be self-paced and self-guided.  Ride as far as you want and at the speed you want.

  • Easy Road Ride: 22 miles, easy pace and only 550’ of climbing.
  • Jacks Mountain 50: This 47 mile ride is for moderate to advanced road bike riders that enjoy changes in elevation.  It is only 47 miles, but we are giving credit for 50.  It is not a race! The 47 miles will be done at a moderate pace so that it is enjoyable for all experienced bike riders.

The suggested minimum donation per rider is $25 for adults and $5 for children under 12.  All riders are encouraged to solicit addition donations toward their ride.  The top fundraiser will receive a prize.

All donations are tax deductible and should be payable to “The Rotary Foundation” with PolioPlus on the memo line.  Any gift of $1,000 or more will receive a special recognition from The Rotary Foundation.

Not a bike rider?  Become a “virtual rider” by making a donation and supporting polio eradication. Mail your check with this form or go on line and give at: https://raise.rotary.org/District7360PedalsOutPolio/fundraiser2
