This unique unit was formed approximately 20 years ago and their purpose was to transport patients to and from eastern North Carolina to Shriner’s Hospitals. Our first members were dedicated to the point that they used their own vehicles. Then, thanks to the hard work and support of many Shrine clubs and units, our members started donating new vans to the transportation department. The program now have a nice fleet of first class mini and large passenger vans, some equipped with wheelchair lifts to assure patients and their parents have a safe and comfortable trip. The current Roadrunner membership consists of 31 active and 6 associate volunteer drivers who gladly offer their free time to safely transport patients and parents.
