Join us for the Second Annual Run for A Child 5K Run Walk
9:00am | August 10, 2014 | Riverbend Park | Old Mill District, Bend
2014 Online Race Registration is Open!
The 5K “Run for A Child” was conceived with the idea of creating a “Shriner’s Sunday” where families could come, participate in a run/walk for an outstanding cause, and then enjoy a BBQ hosted by the Central Oregon Shriner Club. Booths from our sponsors will be set up, along with the Shriner go-carts, to round out a complete morning of family fun.

New Patient Referral /Partnership with Mosaic Medical Clinics
COSC has entered into a partnership with Mosaic Medical to be our primary referring agency for children in Central Oregon. If you have a child or know a child who might be eligible to receive care and doesn’t have a primary physician, they can contact Mosaic and make an appointment. Mosaic Medical will see the child and make the referral. Mosaic Medical, is a non-profit organization and has clinics throughout Central Oregon. They are very excited to be able to offer the Shriners Hospital for Children® assistance to our local Central Oregon children.
Welcome Macy, our 2014 Run Co-Marshal Macy is a middle school student from Bend. In May 2013, she entered the Shriners Hospital for Children® system, in Portland. Two months later she underwent a lengthy spinal surgery to correct her scoliosis. Without this life changing surgery, her future mobility may have been questionable. She is working on signing up 100 friends and family for the event. We are excited and honored to have her join with us.
And welcome back to Zachary, our 2013 Run Marshal. Zachary lives in Bend and was born with one leg significantly shorter than the other. He was referred through our local screening clinic in 2004 and has been a patient of Shriners Hospital in Portland since he was 9 months old.. We are honored to have been a part of his journey and honored that he will be sharing race day with us again.
