The relentless fight against polio has been a beacon of hope and dedication for Rotary International. In this spirit of persistence and solidarity, the Rotary Club Sevilla International hosted a family-friendly day filled with health, sport, and social awareness under the banner “Unwind.”
Set against the incomparable backdrop of the Plaza de España, adorned by a sunset that seemed to be brushed across the sky, club members and their families gathered for this emblematic event. The activity, led by the distinguished professional personal trainer Cleber Lourenço, not only promoted the importance of physical and mental well-being through exercise but also served as a reminder of the vital work Rotary is doing in the eradication of polio.
During the event, the club’s president, Fran Guillén, shared words that echoed powerfully among those present: “We must continue to contribute and raise awareness of polio, a global problem against which Rotary International has been fighting for years, and we will not rest until it is completely eradicated.”
Rotary International has been at the forefront of this battle for decades, investing tens of millions of dollars and an unprecedented global effort that has brought the disease to the brink of extinction. However, it is in the “last mile” of this marathon that we need the most support and visibility. The “Unwind” activity was another step towards that goal, uniting the community for a common cause.
Cleber Lourenço, with his infectious energy and professionalism, led a session that was more than a series of exercises; it was a demonstration of solidarity. Parents and children, friends and neighbors, all moved to the rhythm of health and cooperation, showing that individual and collective well-being can go hand in hand.
As evening fell and the silhouettes of Sevillian architecture were tinted with warm colors, the Plaza de España witnessed the strength of a community that not only seeks personal betterment but also global progress. Every stretch and every smile were in honor of those who fight against a disease that, thanks to efforts like this, will soon be part of history.
From Sevilla to the most remote corners of the world, the message is clear: the battle against polio is almost won, but we will not lower our guard until it is completely eradicated. Events like “Unwind” are a vibrant reminder that, even in moments of leisure and enjoyment, we can contribute to a greater cause.
As the sun said goodbye and the stars began to peek out, we not only left behind a day of exercise and fun but also renewed our commitment to a healthier and fairer world. The Rotary Club Sevilla International thanks all participants for their enthusiasm and invites them to continue participating in initiatives that demonstrate that serving others is the best exercise for the soul.
