    Polio Survivor Robert “Ziggy” Burns to be honored as March of Dimes “Citizen of the Year”

    Lowell Signature Chefs Auction to be held October 3

    Westborough, MA, June 20, 2013 —

    Polio survivor and Lowell native Robert “Ziggy” Burns will be honored as the March of Dimes 75th Anniversary “Citizen of the Year” at the Lowell Signature Chefs Auction on October 3 at Lenzi’s Catering and Function Facilities in Dracut.

    The official announcement of Burns as the Signature Chefs event honoree was made at a kickoff party on June 19 at Four Oaks Country Club in Dracut. The March of Dimes Massachusetts Chapter presented Burns with a framed, custom-made postage stamp celebrating the honor.

    Burns, a community/business development officer at Sage Bank (formerly LowellBank) and a member of the March of Dimes Lowell board of directors, was diagnosed with polio in 1952 at the age of 12 and doctors told him that he would most likely never walk again. Beating all the odds with his strong will and determination, he never gave up hope that he would one day walk again. Astoundingly, Ziggy did not only walk again, but he went on to play quarterback for his Lowell High School football team under the leadership of famed coach Ray Riddick.

    The March of Dimes took care of all Ziggy’s medical expenses on the way to funding research that helped eradicate polio from the United States.
