ONE ENGINE, TWO PILOTS
AND A 2:1 DONATION MATCH

Peter Teahen and John Ockenfels are raising awareness for polio eradication by piloting a single engine aircraft all the way around the globe in 51 days!

Peter and John will take off from Cedar Rapids, Iowa on March 24, 2020 in a Piper Lance (single engine) airplane. Along the way, they will encourage support of ending polio forever throughout the world.

Both Peter and John are pilots, Rotarians, and members of the Fellowship of Flying Rotarians. Polio eradication has been a primary focus of Rotary for over 35 years and continues to be a major initiative. While the end of polio may be near, no child anywhere is safe until every child has been vaccinated.
