Polio Australia is, once again, delighted to be partnering with Scope by fielding a team in their Walk With Me event in Melbourne to be held on Fathers Day, Sunday 1st September 2013. The amount raised for Polio Australia through donations made in support of our "Melbourne Meander" team will be shown on this team page. Tax-deductible receipts for the donations will be provided by Everyday Hero on behalf of, and in the name of, Scope. All money donated to Polio Australia's team will in turn be donated by Scope to Polio Australia (less any applicable credit card fees / processing charges).
