Toronto East Rotary News
Last week our speaker was Lindsay Oughtred, Executive Director of Kids Up Front.  Kids Up Front provides youth services/experiences for social service organizations and healthcare organizations throughout Toronto. They distribute tickets to arts, culture and sporting events to deserving kids and their families through its many programs such as “Can’t Use Your Ticket”, “Give A Kid A Game”, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” as well as Access/Pass Programs at the AGO, ROM and Ontario Science Centre.  Thank you Lindsay for telling us about your group!
Recently, Marvin Prashad told us his inspiring story. As a teen he fled the United States in search of a way out of poverty with criminal elements trying to pull him down. Marvin told us of his journey from abuse and poverty to successful business owner and through strength, determination and iron will, he built a life for himself in Toronto against all odds. Today Marvin is husband, father and the owner, operator and head instructor at Dragonz Martial Arts Studio and an active member of the East Toronto Community. Thank you for sharing!
Our speaker last week was David Lockett, a member of the Rotary E-Club of Social Innovators D7090 and co-founder of the award-winning charity, PACT (Participation, Acknowledgement, Commitment and Transformation) Urban Peace Program which was featured in the April 2019 editions of The Rotarian and Rotary Canada magazines. PACT works with young offenders and other at-risk youth who may benefit from its intensive life-coaching regimen. PACT pairs each participant with a life coach for 12-18 months where they can also learn practical skills and pursue creative interests. More than 25 Toronto area clubs support PACT financially and/or by volunteering as mentors.  Thank you for informing us on the great work you do!

Polio Anywhere is a Risk to Children Everywhere

Polio cases have declined rapidly since 1985, but the fight isn't over. Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, and for as little as $0.60, a child can be protected against the virus for life. If we don't finish the fight right now, more than 10 million children under the age of five could be paralyzed by polio in the next 40 years.
 
Since the global initiative began more than 30 years ago, Rotary and its partners have reduced polio cases by more than 99 percent worldwide. There are only two countries where the wild polio virus has never been stopped: Afghanistan and Pakistan.
 

It’s Achievable: 

There is no cure for polio, but the polio vaccine successfully prevents cases.

End Polio Now!
