The 5K and 10K “Run for A Child” was conceived with the idea of creating a “Central Oregon Shriners Day” 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 kid’s activities, prizes and a silent auction 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.
