Be A Shriner Now

When you become a Shriner, you become part of a brotherhood of men committed to family, engaged in ongoing personal growth, and providing care for children and families in need. While our backgrounds and interests may be diverse, what binds us together are shared values and a desire to have fun, do good and build bonds that last a lifetime.

Be a Shriner Now

Shriners come from all walks of life.
We are plumbers and professionals, salesmen and CEOs.
We are fathers, uncles, and sons.
We are also brothers.

If you hold the title of Master Mason in Freemasonry, you qualify and are invited to join the Shriners. In order to become a Shriner you must ask a current Shriner to support and sponsor your application.

Shriners Run for a Child

Noble Terry Griffith

The Central Oregon Shriners Run For A Child completed its 5th season this year and has found a new home for the donations and sponsorships. With the guidance of Kathy Krueger Park, Director of Development at the Shriners Hospital for ChildrenPortland, the Run For A Child has chosen the Motion Analysis Clinic as our partner, with a donation of $20,000.

The Motion Analysis Clinic is utilized to assist the treatment team in deciding on the best course of action to help a child’s mobility. The Clinic utilizes innovative technology to input the movement of the patient into a computer that creates a 3D image of their movement. This is accomplished by placing numerous reflective nodes in strategic locations on the patient and then utilizing infrared cameras to capture the motion. This allows for interpretation of pre-surgical movement and how best to address the treatment.

Shriners Run for a Child

This is the only clinical pediatric motion analysis clinic in Oregon and one of four on the west coast (three of which are at our neighboring Shriners Hospitals). Over 500 patients utilize the services of the Motion Analysis Clinic on an annual basis.

A new program has been created to address the nutrition of our surgical patients, pre and postoperative. It has been identified that there is a growing trend of malnutrition among our patients, to the point that surgeries are being postponed until the child’s nutrition status improves. It is imperative that these children receive the nutrition necessary to not only prepare for surgery but for following surgery.

The Shriners Run For A Child is excited to be the first benefactor to help with this program by donating $5,000 and look forward to doing more next year.

About Shriners

The Ancient Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine was founded in 1872 by a group of 13 men belonging to the Masonic Order. It was originally established to provide fun and fellowship for its members.

On January 3, 1888, Imperial Potentate Sam Briggs granted the dispensation for Al Kader Shrine. On February 15, 1888, members of Islam Shrine conferred the Shrine degrees in Portland, Oregon. There were fourteen original members.

Al Kader Shriners was the first Shrine Center to be established in the Pacific Northwest. Originally located in the City of Portland, our home is now in Wilsonville.

Al Kader History Slide Show

Irving W. Pratt was elected the first Illustrious Potentate on February 15, 1888. Al Kader was the 46th charter and the first in the Pacific Northwest. Pratt’s great grandson, Noble Ard Pratt – Potentate in 2009, is today an active Al Kader Shriner.

Now, there are approximately 300,000 Shriners. They gather in 196 Shrine Centers throughout the United States, Canada, Germany, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and the Republic of Panama. In 2010, in order to reflect the growth of the Shrine outside North America, we became Shriners International.

Shriners Hospital

The Imperial Council met in Portland, Oregon, in 1920. Al Kader Shriners and their delegation helped to write that indelible page in the Book of Humanity, and thus began the Shriners Hospitals for Children, for it was here that the movement to define our philanthropy began.

There are now 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children providing care for orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate.

Shriners Hospital Portland

These hospitals have helped more than one million children — regardless of a families' ability to pay. --since the first Shriners Hospital for Children opened in Shreveport, LA in 1922.

We are very fortunate to have one of the Shriners hospitals located in Portland. In 1924, the original Shriners Hospital opened in Portland at NE 82nd Ave.and Sandy Boulevard.

Eventually, it was decided to build a new facility within the Oregon Health Sciences medical complex, overlooking the downtown area from the West Hills, at a capital investment of over $25 million. The Portland Hospital specializes in orthopedic treatment and surgery, includes a Research Center and is also a teaching facility. In 2010, an $85 million expansion of the Portland Hospital was dedicated, and is in use today.

Since that time, for over almost 95 years, more than a million children with orthopedic problems, burns and spinal cord injuries have been treated up to their 18th birthday, in a network of 22 hospitals providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research, and outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals.
