Paces for Polio
Every May, Interact clubs in the Bay Area participate in Paces for Polio, a 24-hour charity walk-a-thon to raise money for polio vaccinations for children in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria. For the past few years, Lowell -- despite being one of the smallest Interact clubs in our district -- raised the most money out of all the Bay Area clubs. When not walking laps with friends (while hula-hooping, jump-roping, playing frisbee, or just talking), there are games, a bounce house, live music, karaoke, movies, and all the food you could possibly eat.

The Lowell Interact Club is Rotary International’s service club for teens. With almost 200,000 teens involved in over 100 countries, Interact is one of the fastest growing programs of Rotary. Interact’s mission is to help its members develop leadership skills, improve the community, and make a difference in the world, with the overarching goal of spreading awareness and vaccines for polio. Though there are over 10,700 Interact clubs worldwide, they are self-governing so each club can choose to volunteer for serve causes we care about. Lowell’s Interact volunteers at various events such as marathons, the San Francisco Food Bank, and school events.
