Welcome to the 273 Airmen Chapter of Free Runners Masonic Order.
Our goal is to provide support and relief to charities that focus on children, Veterans and the less fortunate.

“Virtus Junxit Mors Non Separabit”

Airmen Brand - White

Made in Manitoba

The 273 Airmen are the local (Manitoba) Charter for the Free Runners Masonic Order. We are a Not-For-Profit group. Our primary commitment to Charity is through community works by positive action. The focus of the 273 Airmen is to provide support and relief to charities that focus on children, Veterans, and the less fortunate. For us to get involved, a charity must be local, in need, and be able to ensure that all funds raised go directly to assist the issue.

Charities

Freemasonry teaches us to practice charity, regulate your actions, and limit your desires, live to spread the morality in day to day working of life. Therefore, the practice of charity in Freemasonry is of utmost importance being one of the most important cardinal virtues for brotherly love, relief and moral truth. Our members dedicate themselves to making their communities better by supporting many wonderful organizations and their good works.

Working with the Free Runners Club to bring Anna’s dream to life was an absolute joy. Their dedication and enthusiasm throughout their campaign was truly inspiring. The Free Runners exemplified what it means to be community-minded and generous. Their efforts, from organizing raffles and T-shirt sales to securing direct donations and prizes, showcased their commitment to making a real difference. It was evident that their hearts were fully invested in bringing joy to Anna and her family, and their kindness left a lasting impression on all of us at The Dream Factory.

The Free Runners are not just a group of bikers; they are a beacon of compassion and generosity. Their willingness to go above and beyond to support Anna’s dream of a Disney Cruise speaks volumes about their character. Raising $10,500 is no small feat, and it was achieved because of their tireless efforts and the strong sense of community they fostered. We are incredibly grateful for their partnership and look forward to future collaborations where we can continue to create magical moments for children in need. Thank you, Free Runners, for your unwavering support and for being such wonderful, kind-hearted people.
