SWIM TO END POLIO
On August 6th & 7th, Rotarian Thie Convery will swim 52km across Lake Ontario for Rotary International's END POLIO NOW Campaign
“The bottom line is this: As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, all children - wherever they live - remain at risk. ”
Marilyn Bell Park: Seeing The Finish Line
A few weeks ago Thie headed to Marilyn Bell Park in Toronto, Ontario in order to get a view of her finish line. After a brief swim she found the Marilyn Bell Park dedication plaque.
For Thie, the completion of the Lake Ontario swim will be the culmination of a year of training and effort dedicated to a successful crossing.
Although Thie will cross her finish line, just as Marilyn Bell (and the other 51 successful crossers did), we are reminded that in this fight to eradicate Polio, the world is not quite there. The finish line is in sight. We are this close:
to eradiating Polio.
Keep swimming, keep pushing, keep on!
End Polio Now!
