Rotary Club of Ambala hosted the World Polio Day celebrations for District 3080. A cycle rally with participation of over 1,200 students from various institutions in Ambala was the highlight of the celebration. PRIP KR Ravindran greeted the audience through a brief video message and DG Raman Aneja stressed the need to focus on polio awareness.
The Chief Guest R C Mishra, Additional DGP, Panchkula and Ambala, flagged off the 3-km rally and praised Rotary’s effort and involvement to eradicate polio from India. PRID YP Das and DG Aneja led the rally along with other Rotarians and Rotaractors. A van, screening a film on Rotary’s 30-year-long struggle to end polio in India, will travel throughout D 3080 for 120 days, visiting clubs and government and private schools to sensitise the community on the ill-effects of polio. Flagged off from Ambala on October 24, the journey of the van will culminate at Karnal to coincide with the District Conference on February 17.
