 Jim Dahl, a First City Rotarian, has a passion for the Rotary Foundation and Polio Eradication.  He already has raised $20,000+ dollars for the Foundation in SE Alaska and British Columbia and is heading out again, this time going North to Alaska and Yukon Territories presenting to clubs and encouraging clubs to donate to the Foundation. Even non-Rotarians are donating!   Our club donated $1000 + to his RFAR ride so far!  He says, "RFAR is coming to mind.. the ride schedule is shaping up to the last two week of July and all of August. We have a Duck Race to run!"  GOOD LUCK OUR FOUNDATION MAN!!!
