Weʼve raised £100 to End Polio Now (Raising target updated monthly)
- Edinburgh, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 17th February 2016
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This cycle ride comes at an important time in the fight to eradicate polio, which would be only the second human disease to ever be eradicated. If polio isn’t stopped now, the disease could stage a comeback, affecting an estimated 200,000 children every year.
A highly infectious disease, polio can cause paralysis and sometimes death. There is no cure for polio, but for as little as 60 US cents worth of oral vaccine, a child can be protected from the disease for life.
