In the fight against polio, the time to act is now
Area Rotary Clubs want to end polio, and they want to end it now. This weekend, you can help them in their fight against the crippling, and potentially deadly, disease. The Dixon, Rock Falls, Sterling Noon, Twin Cities Sunrise, and Walnut Rotary clubs will host their annual End Polio Now Walk on Saturday at Centennial Park, 510 E. 11th St., Rock Falls. Registration begins at 8:15 a.m. at Larson Shelter, and the race begins at 9 a.m. The walk is free, but donations are welcome, and T-shirts will be available for $20 while supplies last. All donations will be doubled by the Gates Foundation.
