What sets this event apart is how it benefits local children who are not nameless faces but the kids who are right here in Central Oregon, who a lot of times are at the races! Meet Payton, a 4th grader from Redmond and a big fan of Ducks. Born with a disorder known as Arthrogryposis or club feet. He has joined the ever growing group of local Shriner kids in promoting this event.

What can your Donations Do?

All net proceeds from this occasion will go to the Shriners Hospitals for Children-Portland Oregon. Donations greatly help fund the Sports and Recreation Program which exposes patients to various adaptive sports and recreational activities. Also, it gives abundant opportunities to patients that they would never have. No other run provides so much while helping the children of our community.

As this race was done annually, let us keep supporting the Hospital and the children by donating and participating in their events together with us, the Einstein Plumbing family.
