The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) is committed to achieving a polio-free world. Rotary is a spearheading partner in the GPEI, along with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Gates Foundation. The goal of the initiative is the global certification of polio eradication.

Through the work of GPEI, more than five million people, mainly in the developing world, who would otherwise have been paralyzed, are walking because they have been immunized against polio, and more than 500,000 cases of polio are prevented each year due to the efforts of governments and GPEI partnership. Transmission of the polio virus has been stopped in all but three countries – Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria – and the virus is being contained within increasingly smaller geographic areas within those countries.Free Admission.  Commemorative pint glass and raffle tickets available to purchase at the event.
