Feeling on top of the world

 

DOMECLIMB2Following an arduous climb with other Rotarians from the London District, our District Governor Toni Finkel finally conquered the summit of the O2 Dome near North Greenwich in London. You can support Toni through http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ToniFinkel

DOMECLIMB1On reaching “terra firma” once again, a slightly breathless Toni declared that the journey down was less tiring!

 

The event was a fundraiser for Rotary’s campaign to “End Polio Now”.  Whereas, when we launched the campaign in 1985, we were expecting one thousand cases per day, the total number of cases in 2015 was just 74, and so far this year there have been just two cases in Pakistan.  The project is not coming to an end however, as there is still much to do.  The funds raised for the climb will be matched twice over by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
