The Rotary Peace Forum weekend and Rotary’s Feb 23rd founding date was recognized by the City of Richmond declaration of Rotary Day Feb 23, 2013. In recognition of the timing of this unique opportunity, a collaborative and coordinated effort of “End Polio Now” booths was set up at 5 locations to promote Peace and draw attention to Polio eradication, a joint effort of Rotary Club Richmond, Richmond Sunrise, Richmond Sunset, Ladner, Tsawwassen, North Delta, Rotaract Club of Richmond, Interact Club of Hugh Boyd, Steveston London, Delta Secondary School and Tsawwassen.
A primary poster depicting a child receiving drops of vaccine was used to illustrate a National Immunization Day. Shoppers were prompted to drop their donations as if they were virtually administering vaccine and protecting children from polio.  Donations collected were matched by the Government of Canada as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation towards End Polio Eradication
On this Peace themed weekend, shoppers were encouraged to post messages of Peace on each booth Peace Board.

The significance of the Rotary “End Polio Now” booths was highlighted and honoured by distinguished visitors including Hon. Alice Wong M.P., Dr. Bob Scott, Chair RI PolioPLus Committee, Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, DG Rebecca McPherson, PDG Chris Offer and PDG Penny Offer.
