In 1985, Rotary International launched the Polio Plus Campaign with the goal of eradicating the disease and initially pleged to raise $120 Million.  Since that time Rotary has made additional pledges and has so far raised well over $1 Billion, along with providing hundreds of thousands of Rotarian manhours to distribute and dispense the vaccine throughout the world.  Rotary is now joined iwth the BIll & Melinda Gates Foundation, UNICEF, the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control in the End Polilo Now project.
 
The McMurray Rotary has consistently provided support to this project throughout it's almost thirty years of existence, having donated over $25,000 to this cause alone.  Our most recent activitiy was being a sponsor of the Million Dollar Dinner in November, 2013, which actually raised almost THREE million dollars for the End Polio Now prroject.
