Delta Lodge participated in running Dagmar's Walk in the Park to benefit The Myositis Association on Saturday, September 19th, 2015. St. Paul's-Algonquin Lodge, before merging, was a primary sponsor and volunteer source for this great event, and Delta Lodge now carries this tradition forward. Over our Lodge's involvement with this event, we've raised over $30,000 for The Myositis Association.
Myositis means muscle inflammation, and can be caused by infection, injury, certain medicines, exercise, and chronic disease. About 40,000 people in the United States have this condition, which makes Braintree somewhat rare in that it has 2 citizens who are affected. One of these is Dagmar Slaven, for whom this event is named.
