Thank you for your interest in Global Polio Eradication. Cupcakes for Polio is a fundraising initiatives of the Rotary Club of Kitchener Grand River.

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, what better way to show appreciation to your family, friends and work colleagues. Please consider purchasing some delicious cupcakes to help our cause.

Cupcakes for Polio - this link will take you to the page where you can order your cupcakes or make a donation to help eradicate polio from the world.

Rotary International, along with UNICEF, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and governments of the world, have reduced polio cases by 99% worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. More than 10 million people are walking today who otherwise would have been paralyzed. The number of countries with endemic polio has since been reduced from 125 to 3.

It’s a Good Investment: This objective aims to ensure that the world remains permanently polio-free. The benefits of a polio-free world will extend to all children everywhere, in perpetuity, protecting them forever from this debilitating, preventable disease. The world has invested $9 billion dollars toward polio eradication and an independent study published in the medical journal Vaccine estimates the net economic benefits at US$40 to 50 billion over the next 20 years – a savings that can be put toward fighting other diseases.

The Human Cost: If we don’t end polio now, experts say the disease could rebound to 10 million cases in the next 40 years.

Sponsored by: The Cake Box

The Cake Box was named as one of Canada's top 5 bakeries by Bakers Journal. They bake their cupcakes fresh daily sourcing local ingredients when possible and making everything from scratch. No artificial ingredients or preservatives are added.

Skate 48 is The Rotary Club of Kitchener Grand River's largest fund raiser.   Millions of dollars have been raised through this event to help children and youth in our community and in the international community.  Thanks to all of the great volunteers who make the event such a success and thanks to the wonderful supporters who come out year after year and work so hard to raise the money to further the work for children and youth.
