2nd Annual Ride to End Polio Set for October 24

David Everly

District Polio Plus chair Jon Bullock and team are hard at work preparing for the October Ride to End Polio. More details will follow next month, but here are the basics to help you start planning how you will participate.

Ride Location: If the COVID-19 situation improves, there will be three live locations: Grapevine, Abilene, and Wichita Falls.

Ride Location Plan B: If COVID-19 does not allow an in-person ride, we will switch to a virtual format and participants will ride or spin in their own location rather than in a central location.

Club Participation: We would like at least one participant per club, either as a bike rider, a spinner, or a coordinator.

Fundraising: Participants will solicit donations from club members, family members, friends, business associates, and sponsors.

Making a Donation in support of Your Favorite Bike Rider: Bike riders from throughout the district volunteer to do a 20-mile bike ride beginning and ending in Grapevine or a one hour ride on a spin cycle at Lifetime Family Fitness. The riders are seeking End Polio Now donations from Rotary members and friends throughout District 5790. We hope to have at least one rider representing each club. So, if you do not have a favorite rider, choose one from your club or club nearby.


• The rider, Rotarian or non-Rotarian, who raises the most money will be named the District 5790 Polio Champion.

• Clubs with 100% participation that average $25 per Rotarian will receive district recognition.

• Individuals, Rotarians and non-Rotarians, who donate $100 or more will receive district recognition.

Champions Rotary Club meets every Wednesday morning from 8 to 9 a.m. in the Mule Barn, Justin, Texas. Come see us!
