As you know, World Polio Day is October 24. District 7820 PolioPlus Committee Chair, Tom Campbell, offers the following suggestions for ways you may celebrate the day:
  • Pints for Polio - Collaborate with local craft beer pub, charge $20 to get in for a beer and munchies, and every $1 of a beer sold goes to Polio;
  • Have a flag raising at your city or provincial building.  Most will have a flag pole where you may fly the End Polio Now flag for a day;
  • 5K walk for Polio - similar to the CIBC run for the Cure. Walk and raise donations/pledges;
  • Invite 6-8 people to dinner at your home, and charge $25-$30 each. Prepare the meal yourself, and give the money raised to Polio.
Also, check out where you may find ideas, download materials, as well as an event planning guide. If your club does do an event, please register it at They are trying to get 5,000 events around the world. Tom also has plastic ponchos for those wanting to do a walk. Feel free to connect with him at or phone 902-394-4738 if you would like him to send some to your club. And remember, if there’s no picture, it didn’t happen!
