Dam Ran 2017

Enjoy a Beautiful run by Lake Ogallala, don’t miss the great opportunity to help the Rotary Club of Ogallala to raise money to eradicate Polio.
All the proceeds will go towards Polio Plus.
Polio Plus : Polio is a crippling and potential fatal infectious disease that still strikes children mainly under age 5 in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. It can paralyze and sometimes cause death. There is not a cure for Polio but it can be prevented with vaccine. Rotary International’s Polio Plus goal is to help eradicate Polio worldwide. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has given $355 million to Rotary towards Polio Plus, of which Rotary will match $200 million thereby giving a total of $555 million toward Polio eradication.
