THANK YOU

Thanks to all the supporters of Walk to Beat Polio

I would like to extend my great thanks and appreciation to all those individuals, whether Rotarians or friends and family, who supported the "Walk to Beat Polio" project.

Whether your support was financial and/or emails with words of encouragement, they all helped to inspire me to complete the walk. And there is no better cause to support than Rotary International’s effort to eradicate polio from the world once and for all.

There is no doubt that I underestimated "mother nature" when I thought that the weather this year would be much the same as it was last year.  All my research indicated it might only be a bit cooler and a bit wetter. I had no expectation that I would face winter-like conditions for almost 10 days and I was ill prepared to deal with it. You can deal with hot and wet weather fairly readily as it is mostly a discomfort but freezing temperatures with strong winds is something totally different when you don't have adequate clothing. Those were the times that supporters made the difference. I thank you all for making the difference.
