Sock it to Polio! October 23rd marks World Polio Day.
Rotary club of Cumberland Spokesperson John Challender says on the following day, Saturday October 24th, rotarians will be sporting brightly coloured socks and seeking donations to help support the fight against polio.
Challender says it’s an effort that spreads around the world.
He adds as of now, there’s no official cure for polio.
Challender says about 5 years ago, India was declared polio free, with Nigeria following suit a few years later. Pakistan and Afghanistan are the last 2 countries were polio is still endemic.
