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.

There have only been Eight cases of polio this year, all of them in 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.
