Rotary shared the polio eradication message on the world stage during the Global Citizen Festival concert in Central Park, organized by the Global Poverty Project. The concert drew a live audience of more than 60,000 people and was viewed worldwide. Rock legend Neil Young, a polio survivor, closed the show.
Just before Neil Young took the stage, the End Polio Now message was driven home by actress Archie Panjabi, a Rotary “This Close” campaign celebrity; Aseefa Bhutto Zardari, daughter of Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari; Ramesh Ferris, a Canadian Rotarian and polio survivor; and John Hewko, Rotary International General Secretary and CEO.
