October 27 | End Polio Now 5K Run/Walk | 9:00am – 12pm , run starts at 10:00am | Sproul Plaza

We are three countries away from eradicating polio*. Join us in the final push by participating in Cal Rotaract’s first ever End Polio Now 5K Run/Walk on Sproul Plaza. Check-in will start at 9AM and the race starts at 10AM.

Registration is at the Cal Rotaract table (M-Th 10AM – 2PM) or online (http://endpolionow5k.doattend.com/) for $15. Prices rise after 10/22 to $20. All proceeds will go to Rotary International’s mission to eradicate polio in the remaining three countries. In addition, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has recently started an initiative to donate $2 for every $1 donated to the cause, which will triple any amount raised. The first 150 registrants will receive a t-shirt the day of the event, and the rest will have to pick them up at our table on Sproul once we receive them, so sign up early!

*Polio is a highly contagious disease that can leave someone permanently paralyzed. It mainly affects children, and just 60 cents will protect a child for life.

Note that paying at the table is highly recommended since DoAttend & PayPal charge online fees.
