The Rotary Club of Hamburg participated in the 2nd Annual Dr. Ron Mergl Pedal/Participate for Polio fundraiser.  District 7090 has a goal to reach  $60,000 USD, which will be tripled by the Gates Foundation. 
The Rotary Club of Hamburg sponsored a riding team consisting of Hamburg residents Tom Nemmer and Jay O'Donnell.  On October 6th, Tom and Jay rode 52.3 miles.  They rode for 4 hours and 21 minutes with an elevation of 1,439 feet.  Currently donations have reached $545 which will be tripled by the Gates Foundation.  
Help us meet the District's goal. Now is not the time to loose focus.  We are so close to eradicating Polio from the world! You can donate a flat amount or pledge by the mile.  All donations will go solely towards Polio eradication. Donations can be made through PayPal or by mailing a check to Hamburg Rotary Club, PO 340, Hamburg, NY 14075.   If mailing a check, please specify that your donation is for Petal for Polio.
