FDR Lodge 613 Knights of Pythias
Diabetes Research Association
Because awareness of Diabetes is a major concern of Pythians the Diabetes Research Association was established in 1997 to help fund research to find a cure.
The Pythian DRA has become the largest single fundraising committee in the Grand Lodge.
It supports the nationally recognized Diabetes Research Foundation as well as the American Diabetes Association.
Through fundraising events like local golf tournaments, table at street fairs, sale of merchandise, the Pythian DRA has been able to raise and donate over $500,000 to diabetes research groups since its inception.
