A BIG SHOUT OUT to you SYDNEY, THANK YOU, you achieved $240,000.00 in donations and with the Gates Foundation matching our dollars 2:1 the final amount will come to $720,000.00! Woohoo!
In the countdown to history to End Polio Now this Challenge was the innovative idea of Mark Anderson and his son Dave from Rotary Club of Beecroft, to "Ride the Train to End Polio" and Beecroft Rotarians Zenda and Anne joined the challenge too.
The Challenge started at 4.32am at Epping Station and went through 187 stations in one day, ultimately finishing at Cronulla Station, Sydney at 11.50pm.
Thanks to everyone that turned up at the stations to donate and/or to take the ride, fund raised to help make this event the success it was and to those that jumped on the trains to supply coffee and food for those on this challenge. Well done Sydney!
