9th Annual, Wheaton Lions Club (Virtual) Reindeer Run—SIGN UP HERE!


The Wheaton Lions Club of the Lions International organization was established October 23, 1923. Lions International was founded in Chicago, Illinois, in 1917 by insurance agent Melvin Jones and others. Lions Clubs International has ever since offered business and professional people a way of sharing their success by helping those less fortunate than themselves.

Lions International is the largest service club organization in the world. Our 1.35 million members, in more than 46,000 clubs are serving communities in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the globe. Since 1917, Lions Clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired, championed youth activities and strengthened local communities through hands-on service and humanitarian projects.


Wheaton Lions Club Mission Statement

To be recognized as a philanthropic organization dedicated to serving our community by identifying humanitarian needs, supporting charitable endeavors and promoting kindness through mutual understanding and respect.



  • Sight
    The Lions organization has been an advocate of the visually impaired for over a century and blindness prevention is our long-standing mission. The efforts of Lions in the field of vision correction are comprehensive.

    Strategic Objective: Prevent avoidable blindness, restore vision and improve the life quality for those who are visually impaired.

  • Hearing
    Auditory damage may create a devastating effect on the daily lives of those affected. Hearing loss has been linked to a decline in the quality of relationships, depression and even heart disease.

    Strategic Objective: Promote regular hearing check-ups and screenings to identify hearing loss at an early stage and prevent hearing loss through education and medical care.

  • Diabetes
    Diabetes prevention is a signature Lions Club goal worldwide. Diabetes can lead to serious health complications and is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease and blindness.

    Strategic Objective: Reduce the prevalence of diabetes in our community through education and resources designed to improve the quality of life for those living with diabetes.

  • Hunger
    Hunger and poor nutrition impact an ever-growing percentage of our population and we are dedicated to supporting hunger relief initiatives in our community.

    Strategic Objective: Provide financial support, educational programs and initiatives to increase access to wholesome and nutritious foods for those most vulnerable.

  • Environment
    We all have a responsibility to keep our planet clean, safe and healthy for future generations. Stewardship of natural resources can improve the quality of life and increase awareness in our local communities.

    Strategic Objective: Sustainably protect and restore our environment to improve the well-being of our community through education and action.

  • Children's Pediatric Cancer
    The family is the nucleus around which most communities are built. Lions have seen and felt the effects of cancer on children and their families. We continue to bring hope through our financial support for cancer research and improved services.

    Strategic Objective: Support those families affected by childhood cancer and increase the survival rate of all children diagnosed with cancer.
