Conquering polio together

"There is hope in dreams, imagination, and in the courage of those who wish to make those dreams a reality." -- Jonas Salk

(Jonas Salk is an American virologist and medical researcher who developed one of the first successful polio vaccines in 1955.)

Today, October 24, we celebrate "World Polio Day" together with 1.2 million Rotarians in 167 countries! We are 99.9 percent close in ending polio worldwide! Our local Rotary clubs' actions will surely make a collective impact to globally eradicate Polio, forever!

Last October 17, the Rotary Club of Baguio Summer Capital (RCBSC) embarked anew on its series of activities for the Polio Awareness Campaign. Among these were a Bike Fun Ride from the City Proper to Irisan Cypress Point, a medicine/multivitamins donation for infants/children and the "Purple for Polio" organic ube cupcake baking by the RCBSC Rotary Community Corps Irisan Cypress Point (RCCICP). The activities were held at Purok 14, Irisan.

Special thanks to our facilitators RCBSC RCCICP Pres. Lolita Bosongan, Imelda Wallang, Mary Claire Vergara, Novylyn Doliano, Anita Domogen, Nita Angaga, Emy Bay, Divina Boadilla, and Rose Bagawi. Likewise to our RCBSC Satellite Club and Rotaractors of SLU-SAMCIS headed by Karla Anjeli Villanueva/Anthony Villanueva and Vanessa Valdez respectively. The overall chair was BOD Wendell Aplaten.
