Join us for the Sixth Annual Run For A Child 5K and 10K Event

Packet Pick-up. Packet Pick-Up will be held at Red Robin in the Old Mill District on Friday August 10th from 4pm-6pm. You can also pick your packet up at Riverbend Park before the race. We also offer late registration beginning at 8:30 AM on the day of the run.
The 5K and 10K “Run for A Child” was created to let families know that the Shriners are active in Central Oregon in the hopes of finding more local children who could benefit from the services the Shriners Hospital for Children-Portland provide. We have created a “ Shriners Day in Central Oregon” 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, a beer garden, 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.
