As the Race Across America Team was celebrating achieving the $1 million goal and the ability to have 1.67 million children to be vaccinated, we learned that Venezuela has had its first case of polio 30 years.  Not only is first case Venezuela but Polio has landed on another continent which is very concerning.  This reminds us polio is only a plane ride away.  This year there have been 8 cases in Afghanistan and 2 cases in Pakistan.
