WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - The goal is to eradicate polio. That’s why Watertown Noon Rotary will hold its annual Rotary Swimarathon this weekend.
Jeff Wood talked about it on 7 News This Morning. You can watch his interview in the video above.
It will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, February 11, at the Watertown High School pool.
Rotary members will be swimming laps to raise both money and awareness.
It only takes 60 cents to inoculate a child. Polio is still transmitted in the wild in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
