Local Rotary Club members expect to raise $400,000 and are nearly to that goal, said Rotary district foundation Chairman Don Alhart. Sixty-seven Rochester-area clubs are in the district, which stretches from Brockport to Geneva and south to the Pennsylvania line.
In addition to raising money, local Rotarians have also traveled overseas to help administer vaccines that protect against the disease, which causes paralysis.
"Rotarians have done a lot, in addition to raising money, to get the vaccine there," Alhart said, adding that the Rotary logo, which resembles a wheel, is known internationally and helps build trust between Rotary volunteers and communities overseas.
