Rotary is dedicated to the eradication of Polio worldwide. This potentially fatal infectious disease can be prevented through immunization and we are so close to achieving the goal of a polio free world. However, polio remains endemic in two countries – Afghanistan and Pakistan.

RC Karrinyup supports our link school Warwick SHS. Head of Science Graham Johnson reports ‘In the WAHPVA (Western Australian Human Powered Vehicle Association) event both Tallulah and Yokayi ran strongly for the duration of the event. It was cold and miserable with heavy rain prior to the event and considering the two trikes ran without front windscreens for the 6 hours, it was a great overall result. Yokayi ran in the top 10 for most of the day eventually finishing 12th overall and 6th in her division and Tallulah finished 19th overall and first in her division as the highest finishing All-female entrant.’

Graham said’ It is not about winning but about the opportunity, which the support of RC Karrinyup enables Warwick students to experience. ‘We at Warwick Pedal Prix racing are proud to carry the name of the Rotary Club of Karrinyup on our trikes’.
