However, we're going to add something for those of you that would like to participate in our run, but might prefer something a bit less lengthy and difficult. Not only will we have our traditional 4.25 mile trail, but we will be adding a shorter, less challenging course for our walkers and runners.
We will be putting out additional details in the next few weeks as we prepare to open the event for registration. If you have questions, you can contact our Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org

During our 1st Annual Ogden Masonic Charity Trail Run, the members of Ogden Lodge wanted to pick a charity that was known throughout the Central Illinois area as providing an invaluable resource to the community. The Lodge voted unanimously that Developmental Services Center would be our charity that first year, both because of the important work they do, and the fact that they would most benefit from our charity trail run.
Now in its 4th Year, and Ogden Lodge Masonic Charity Trail Run has announced that it will once again partner with DSC.
DSC serves approximately 1,100 children and adults with developmental disabilities, such as epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, cognitive disabilities, Down syndrome, or other conditions. Individuals seeking services may experience functional or environmental challenges that require extra support to live more independently. These challenges may include assistance in adequate daily living skills, adequate work skills, recognized social behaviors, or the ability to access community transportation.
The members of Ogden Lodge are looking forward to once again working with DSC on what we hope will be our best trail run ever. We hope you will help us spread the word.
Stay tuned for more news and registration details.
