Cycle to Save Lives is for all types of riders, competitive and casual. This annual event is hosted as a collaborative effort of Rotarians and Clubs throughout Rotary District 6950, encompassing Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, and Pinellas Counties. Come as a peloton or come as a family. Join friends on the Pinellas Trail as we raise money to eradicate Polio, and help provide critical infrastructure for vaccine distribution throughout the world.
Please donate to help with this great cause. Rotary has been working to End Polio Now for more than 35 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.
As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.
Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $10 billion to the effort.
Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
