There will also be a blind draw for partners to determine the winners who will receive prizes. So, send your team of 4 names to Kathy (firstname.lastname@example.org

Let's do our part to rid the world of this horrible disease. While it seems to be "under control" new cases are cropping up in areas previously declared polio free - the immunizations MUST continue for 3 years after the area has been declared polio free or it will rear it's ugly head again.
