THE FOUR-WAY TEST
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

On November 21, 2015, a team of Rotary Club members and Rotary International employees will be joining the Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko on a 104-mile bike ride to raise contributions help end Polio around the world. This “Miles To End Polio” initiative of Rotary International will occur during the El Tour De Tucson bike event in Arizona.
As a member of the Rotary Club of Naperville-Downtown and an employee of the Rotary International headquarters, I’ll be joining this team. Inspired by the Rotary’s motto of “Service above Self,” I joined Rotary International and the local Rotary Club of Naperville-Downtown in 2013.
The fight to end Polio around the world has a special meaning to my family and I. Two of my first cousins died of Polio in India at young adulthood; one at 21 and one at 19. It is so unfortunate that the children of one brother died of a preventable disease while the children of another brother did not because they had access to the Polio vaccine. That is why this fight is so important since we can prevent Polio from striking any child or adult by getting the vaccine to them.
The team of Rotary International riders has been raising contributions for the fight against Polio since August with a goal to raise $1.3 million.
