June 1 Ralph Zuke Rode his bike with a Barcalounger Rickshaw 700+ miles for the eradication of Polio because even one case is too many.  He  accomplished the Ralph's Rickshaw Ride for Polio tour from St. Louis to Toronto.  The ride lasted 22 days, one day for each of the preventable cases of Polio that occurred in 2017. He raised over $23,000 towards the eradication efforts.

There have been 22 cases of polio this year, all of them in Pakistan and Afghanistan.  But did you know that there could be another outbreak in the United States if we aren't proactive in ending this terrible disease?   Check out this video about Paul Alexander who lives in Dallas, TX and who spends most of his day in his iron lung.
 


 
Here is the story of Brady Richard who now maintains Paul Alexander's iron lung.

You can help eradicate polio too!  Your donation is GREATLY needed and appreciated!!!
