Pick a Story Type to Get Started

  • Personal Stories

    If you or someone you know is a polio survivor, tell us why ending polio has a special meaning for you, and how you are supporting the eradication fight.
  • Fundraising Stories

    Rotary, with matching funds from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has contributed more than $1.9 billion to the fight to end polio, thanks to dedicated members and others who have pledged their support. Tell us how you are fundraising to support eradication efforts.
  • Stories from the Field

    In polio-endemic and at-risk countries, supporters are working to make sure that all children are immunized against polio. If you have immunized a child against polio, are from a polio-endemic country, or have worked to make your country polio-free, tell us.
