Mid Michigan Materials Hosts 2nd Annual Levi's Link Run To Benefit Special Needs Patients
Mid Michigan Materials is proud to announce the second annual Levi’s Link 10K, 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk on Sunday, June 23, 2019. The unique run will take place at the Mid Michigan Materials gravel pit in Jeddo, MI. All proceeds from the run will benefit the Levi’s Link Program at McLaren Port Huron Hospital.
Levi’s Link is a first-of-its-kind program in the state of Michigan providing individualized care for patients with special needs at McLaren Port Huron Hospital. The program was established to improve the hospital experience of patients with special needs (including autism, down syndrome, sensory processing disorders, and other special needs) who may be stressed by the normal activity that occurs during a hospital visit.
Levi’s Link promotes individualized patient care based on information gathered during the pre-admission testing assessment. Some accommodations for patients may include reduced exposure to bright lights and noise, and hands-on activities, such as iPads and interactive, tactile toys. Patients and their families will also have access to educational tools and social stories that describe and illustrate the patient’s surgical experience.
The Levi’s Link Run will provide a challenging 10K (new this year), 5K and unique 1 Mile fun run experience. The Mid Michigan Materials gravel pit will provide a scenic and uncommon terrain for runners and walkers of all levels. All proceeds from the run will directly benefit the newly founded Levi’s Link Fund at McLaren Port Huron Hospital’s Foundation, providing the hospital with funds to provide the best care possible to patients with special needs.
