Thie Convery is passionate about the eradication of polio. Back in 1988 when Rotary International started the vaccination process over 350 000 new cases of polio occurred each year. In 2022 there were 30 cases. Up to now in 2023 there are 7 cases of wild polio world wide. Thie decided she wanted to vaccinate over a million children and set about to commit personal funds and help raise money from others. She practiced for over a year to do a marathon swim and in 2010 entered Lake Ontario at Niagara-on-the Lake on her way to Toronto. Bad weather and fear for the safety of her spotting boat ended the swim before she made it. None-the-less with the support of her previous club, The Rotary Club of Dundas, she raised $52 000.
On July 1 2022 she was welcomed into the Arch Klumph Society by RI President Jennifer Jones for her last dollar donation of 250 000USD towards the eradication of polio.
Thie is a member of the Investment Planning Council, IPC Securities Corporation and is a wealth advisor in Dundas .
