Polio Purple Pinkie Trail Run 5K & 10K

April 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Polio Purple Pinkie Trail Run has raised roughly $30,000 over the past 7 years for the Rotary Foundation’s Polio Plus Fund. This money directly supports immunization campaigns in developing countries where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardship faced by their families.

Why Purple Pinkie? Every time a child is immunized, their pinkies are colored purple to show that they are safe from this crippling and deadly disease. Now with new reports of polio amongst the refugees, it continues to be of importance to help us fight. The polio cases represented by the remaining one percent are the most difficult to prevent, due to factors including geographical isolation, poor public infrastructure, armed conflict and cultural barriers. Until polio is eradicated, all countries remain at risk of outbreaks.
