The Challenge

On the 17th of November, Rotary General Secretary John Hewko and a team of staffers will join Rotary members to bike up to 100 miles in El Tour de Tucson to raise funds for polio eradication. The event is one of the top cycling events in the U.S. attracting more than 9,000 cyclists each year. This year's goal is to raise $3.4 Million, which will be tripled by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for a total of more than $10 Million, for the fight to end polio. Learn More about each team member, follow them as they train, and add your support by donating to their ride. 


You can support local Rotarian riders who plan to join together at the Indianola YMCA on Saturday November 17th from 1-3 p.m. To support a local rider contact Rotary Club of Indianola at  

All funds raised at the local level will be forwarded to Rotary International and included in the fight to end polio.
