About the Shriners
Shriners Hospitals for Children® is a health care system of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing specialty pediatric care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs. Children up to the age of 18 with orthopaedics conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate are eligible for admission and receive all care in a family-centered environment regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.
Each year we put on the Baxter Turkey Run to help raise money for the Shiners Hospitals for Children and of course to have a little fun along the way. You never know what kind of temperatures Mother Nature is going to bring you during Thanksgiving. It can be a nice sunny day, or it could be a blizzard outside. Either way we are up for the challenge. If you would like to burn off some calories for Thanksgiving and also help raise some money for a good cause, we would love for you to join us.
