Raise for Rotary Raams Polio.png

We are racing in Race Across America (RAAM) for the fifth year in 2022 to raise awareness and money for Rotary’s PolioPlus campaign to eradicate Polio from the world.  Because of your gifts, we raised over FOUR MILLION in the last 4 years of RAAM racing!!  We have come a long way from 350,000 cases per year in 1985 to just 139 cases in 2020.  Unfortunately, the number of cases is starting to increase slightly which is not the direction as we as a society should be satisfied with. We can’t stop now….our goal is ZERO cases!!!

As Bob McKenzie was racing he stated "..in RAAM 2017 on Saturday morning June 24th at 3am in the very cold, hard, driving, miserable rain, I could have easily quit…..and then the thought came to mind that kids who contract Polio do not get to quit……they are in for LIFE!! Please help us put an end to this horrible disease..." Register your email address (Click Here), we will keep you posted on our progress and on how you can join us in this effort for PolioPlus.

Whether it’s $10 or $500, your contribution supports Rotary's work to achieve a polio-free world. Your gift will support immunization campaigns in countries where children continue to remain at risk.


To do this Race we must also raise funds to support the team (registration, flights, lodging, van rentals, gas, food and many other things).  We hope you will be willing to help us cover these expenses by making a tax deductible donation to:  






                        Rotary Club of Manassas Foundation

                        8925 Dahlgren Ridge Rd.

                        Manassas, VA 20111

                        Write “RAAM” on the memo line of your check


Maybe your company would like to be one of our sponsors by giving $1,000 or more.  We will put their logo on our website and our racing kits.  Please contact Bob McKenzie at rlyonm@gmail.com or Kurt Matzler at kurt.matzler@uibk.ac.at.  Thank you!!

Join us to eradicate polio!

Thank you!!
