Koenig Materials Hosts 6th Annual Levi's Link Run To Benefit Special Needs Patients


Koenig Materials is proud to announce the 6th annual Levi’s Link 10K, 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk on Sunday, May 21, 2023. The unique run will take place at the Koenig Materials gravel pit in Oxford, MI. All proceeds from the run will benefit the Levi’s Link Program at McLaren Port Huron and McLaren Greater Lansing hospitals.



Levi’s Link is a first-of-its-kind program in the state of Michigan providing individualized care for patients with special needs at select McLaren Hospitals. The remarkable program launched in 2018 at McLaren Port Huron and in 2022 expanded to the new McLaren Greater Lansing hospital. Levi's Link was established to improve the hospital experience of patients with special needs of all ages (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.



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 and hospital experience.



The Levi’s Link Run will provide a challenging 10K, 5K and unique 1 Mile fun run experience. The Koenig Materials gravel pit will provide scenic and uncommon terrain for runners and walkers of all levels. The 1 Mile course will also provide a family-friendly experience with activities and photo opportunities for the kids and kids at heart. All proceeds from the run will directly benefit the Levi’s Link Fund at McLaren Port Huron and McLaren Greater Lansing hospitals, helping to provide the best care possible to all patients with special needs.
