Red Lodge Lions

The Red Lodge Lions Club has cooked hamburgers for the Red Lodge Fun Run for Charities for 19 years.  The hamburgers are free and are a goodwill gesture by the Red Lodge Area Community Foundation who coordinates the Fun Run for 62 non profits and charities.  At the Red Lodge Fun Run for Charities 19, held September 3, 2022, almost 700 burgers were cooked and handed out to runners, walkers and supporters.    Last year the Fun Run 18 raised over $342,000 for 60 charities and non profits in Carbon County.  It is an amazing event to have so many charities and thriving non profits working to together to help each other.

The Red Lodge Lions Club has been in integral partner and supporter of this very successful fund raising event for the 19 years of its existence.   Preparation of our barbecue  trailer, picking up food, setting up, cooking, serving and clean up usually requires over 70 hours of volunteer hours from the Red Lodge Lions Club members and others who pitch in to help.
