The Shrine and its 22 hospitals across North America, while maintaining separate legal and financial identities, are linked by the Shrine’s continuing support of Shriners Hospitals. Entry fees do not benefit the Shriners Hospital for Children and are not tax deductible.

This race benefits the Ben Ali Shrine Center of Sacramento, one of 191 Shrine Centers across North America supported by more than 400,000 Shriners. The Center, their units, and affiliated Shrine Clubs embody the true spirit of fraternalism.

For information about the Ben Ali Shrine Center, call (916) 920-4107 or visit www.ben-ali-shriners.org.
Thank you for your support of the “World’s Greatest Fraternity.”
