Today Green Tree Technology hosted the Central Bucks Rotary Club Purple Pinkie Bicycle Ride to raise money for Polio Vaccination.
In previous years we have supported the Purple Pinkie 5K a run/walk held to raise money for Rotary’s Global Polio Eradication Initiative https://my.rotary.org/en/take-action/end-polio. This year there will not be a Purple Pinkie 5K. Instead clubs are encouraged to do a “Virtual 5K”: go for a walk or run or ride or just host an event where we can share information about Polio and Rotary.
—What Is Purple Pinkie—
When a child is vaccinated for Polio through Rotary they also get a piece of candy and their pinkie finger marked in purple ink. If a child comes through the vaccination line and already has a “purple pinkie”, the volunteers know to just give them a piece of candy and not a second dose of the vaccine.
