Shriners Run for a Child

by Terry Griffith, High Priest and Prophet

The 2018 Run For A Child is in the books, but before we close the chapter, let’s recap this year. The support for the Run was greatly appreciated with Units traveling from the Valley to participate, including Motor Escort, Concert Band and the Desert Patrol. This was the first year for the Concert Band and their participation was greatly appreciated. The Motor Escort (specifically IS Ard Pratt and of course Lady Carol) have participated at every Run for the past six years. The Desert Patrol is always a welcome addition and their help is greatly appreciated.

I would also like to thank IS Art Hermanson and Lady Lynne as well as Asst. Rabban Carl Thompson and Lady Feather for traveling to Bend and giving their support.

This event would not be possible if it wasn’t for the great help of our Run Committee, many of whom are Friends of Shriners! They work diligently all year for the event, which was reflected in the presentation of the event this year. My heartfelt thanks go to each and every one of them.

We all work together for the common goal of creating an awareness of the Shriners and the Shriners Hospital for Children-Portland and in providing funding for programs at the Hospital. I would also like to thank everyone who participated in the Deschutes Brewery Community Pints program in July. I realize it was a great deal to ask to have you go to Deschutes Brewery in Portland and have a beer or two, just for the cause. I will share with you that our month set a new record for the Deschutes Brewery Community Pints program! Way to go SHRINERS!

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 - Portland

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.
