Maddie's Run

Widows Sons Mountain Chapter

Present Check for Springfield


Greetings Brothers,

On October 13th at Kora Temple’s Fall Ceremonial the Mountain Chapter of the Widow’s Sons presented a check for $1538 to be given to the Child Life department at Shriners’ Hospitals for Children in Springfield, MA.  These funds were from a run that they held on August 25thin the name of my daughter, Madison Ross, aptly named “Maddie’s Run.”  Early last spring, chapter president Bill Keirstead saw Madison’s video on YouTube of her first experience with having hip surgery at Shriners, “Still Smiling: Maddie’s Journey with Shriners.”  Then, upon learning that Maddie would again have surgery this past summer, he decided that he wanted to do something to help.  Bill thought of doing a motor cycle run to raise money for the hospitals.  He floated the idea with the Brothers from his chapter and they enthusiastically got behind it.  Over the next couple of months they planned out the route, designed a flyer, and spread the word.  Maddie’s Run was the first fundraiser organized by the newest chapter of the Widow’s Sons.  The run was roughly 130 miles and was done in conjuncture with Moose Alley, a bowling alley in Rangeley.  The participants set out about 10AM and returned early in the afternoon.  The Alley then held a bowl-a-thon to raise some more funds.  Thank you to my Brothers Nobel Bill Keirstead, Nobel Mike Adams, Nobel Pete Smith, Barry Bracket, Nobel Harry Clark, Jim Geib of the Mountain Chapter and their ladies!  Many patients at the hospitals will benefit from your efforts.

Fraternally,

Bro. Shane T. Ross
