District Foundaton Dinner
November 14 @ 10:30 pm - November 15 @ 1:30 am
Don’t miss this inspirational event featuring our keynote speaker, Ann Lee Hussey! Meet her during the District Foundation Dinner, to be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel & Conference Center in Framingham. Hussey has made the eradication of polio and the alleviation of suffering by polio survivors her life’s work. In the past 12 years, she has actively participated in 25 volunteer National Immunization Days teams. She has organized and led the last 18 NIDs teams herself, choosing to take them to places that do not often see westerners – Bangladesh, Chad, Mali, Niger and Nigeria as well as less “touristy” destinations in Egypt and India – where the need is greatest, and where the publicity and goodwill surrounding the trip are as critical as the immunizations themselves to help communicate the need for eradication. Hussey, shown immunizing a child against polio in Chad, has shared her story and passion hundreds of times, carrying the message of PolioPlus around the Rotary world and beyond, raising money and creating new converts to the fight. She is determined that no child will needlessly have to suffer what she herself, a polio survivor, has been through. For more information, click here. Clubs in our District will also share their inspiration behind their current Global and District Grants projects. To register, click here!
