Some 32 years ago, Rotary International set itself the task to rid the world of the crippling disease, whereby every child in every country of the world would be immunised.

This year, World Polio Day will be co-hosted by Rotary and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and held at the foundation's headquarters in Seattle.

On Monday in Greensburg, the Greensburg Rotary Club gathered for its annual "This Close" photo of members.

One members says. Being a part of efforts to eradicate the disease feels good. Rotarians and students who took part in the Rotary Youth Leadership Award Conference were also at the Knoxville HyVee, Fareway, and Walmart entrances raising money and bringing awareness to the community for Ending Polio Now.

The World Health Assembly launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988, which supported a massive immunization campaign to vaccinate 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. Since 2013, the foundation has matched $1 for each dollar that Rotary has raised. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match Rotary's commitment 2:1.

President of the club, Rotn Sanjeev Tandon, said since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative almost 30 years ago, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases a year to just 37 cases in 2016.
