Batesburg-Leesville, SC (Paul Kirby) – The Twin City Rotary Club is in the prosses of planning their Inaugural Walk and Golf Cart Parade for Polio. The event is scheduled for Sunday, March 15, 2020 from 3-5:00 p.m. in the town of Batesburg-Leesville.
Rotary Clubs are organized as a way to help the community, nation, and the world. According to their website at www.rotary.org, Rotary members believe that they have a shared responsibility to take action on some of the world’s most persistent issues. The 35,000+ clubs work together to promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, save mothers and children, support education and grow local economies. In the case of the Walk and Golf Cart Parade in Batesburg-Leesville, their mission is to help to eradicate polio.
Most often known as the poliovirus, polio spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can attack the nervous system, and in some instances, lead to paralysis. Although there is no cure, there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and its partners use to immunize over 2.5 billion children worldwide. Being a part of this local event can help with the eradication of this disease across the globe.
