Our Second Annual 10,000 Steps to End Polio Walk is scheduled for the end of this month.  The day is:  Saturday, October 27th from 9 - 12 pm at Fraser River Heritage Park.
- Polio mainly affects children under 5
- There is no cure, but polio is preventable with a vaccine.
- Only 3 countries remain endemic: Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan.
- We’ve reduced cases by 99.9% since 1988.
- Until we end polio forever, every child is at risk.
- It costs approximately .75 to vaccinate a child.
- Every dollar Canadians give is matched 2 for 1 by both the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Canadian government. Therefore $1.00 becomes $5.00 in the fight against polio.
