Each Year, Rotarian Mark Anderson and his son ride trains. This year, prior to the World Polio Day 2020, it will be on 23rd October 2020. Not your usual ride, but an almost impossible ride, all within 24 hours.
This year on the Sydney network, there are 189 stations. To cover every station last year within 24 hours took Mark 18 hours, 10 mins.
Each year through sponsorship Mark raises over $150,000 for the eradication of Polio.
This year Sydney Rotary Club members and friends can sponsor Mark and support the Rotary Foundation.
Sydney Rotary Club members will meet Mark and his Team’s train on Platform 3, Town Hall Station at 2:13pm. We will then board the train headed for Hornsby, hand over our cheque to the Rotary Foundation, take pictures and network with other Rotarians. We can leave the “Polio Express” at any time.
We need your donation to the Rotary Foundation. This can be made by using THIS LINK, marking your donation for End Polio Train Ride.
Ensure this event is in your diary so you can jump aboard at Town Hall Station, Platform 3.
