To celebrate Jonas Salk's birthday, Norfolk Rotarians contributed $3,025 to the effort to eradicate polio. The funds donated will be matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation 2:1. 
 
Foundation chair Sigur Whitaker said, "Norfolk Rotarians' on-going support of The Rotary Foundation's Polio Plus efforts underscore Rotary's commitment to this initiative since 1986. On behalf of the children who will be spared from this life changing disease, thank you!"
