Bob's Support for Polio Eradication
Diagnosed when he was not even a year old, Bob Mutchler understands firsthand how life-altering polio can be. Yet he and his family refused to let the challenges of this debilitating disease affect his future. As an adult Bob combined his membership in Rotary International and his love of motorcycle riding to help with The Rotary Foundation’s commitment to provide polio immunization to children everywhere through a program called PolioPlus. Bob's gripping story is about a man who knows from his own experiences exactly what a “world without polio” can mean to children and families. Crisscrossing Australia and North America on his motorcycle, “Motorcycle Bob”  aka "Iron Butt Bob" shares his own personal struggles as he tirelessly dedicates himself to the eradication of polio worldwide.
