Connecting Central Oregon Kids with Shriners Hospitals for Children
Each year, hundreds of children are treated at the Shriners Hospital for Children® in Portland. Over 100 of them are children from Crook, Jefferson and Deschutes Counties. These children received medical treatment that has changed their lives – treatment that they may not have otherwise received – that was provided regardless of the family’s ability to pay. The “Shriners Run for A Child” is an annual 5K & 10K Run event put on by the Central Oregon Shrine Club. Our mission is to create more awareness of the Shriners and their Hospitals and to raise funds to help support the kids who benefit from their care.
WHAT CAN YOUR DONATIONS DO?
All net proceeds of the Run are donated to the Shriners Hospitals for Children. Donations help to fund the Sports and Recreation Program at our Portland Hospital. This program exposes patients to different adaptive sports and recreational programs. It gives many an opportunity that they would never have. Our goal is to fully support this unfunded program in future years.
