Hurley Medical Center Partnership
Hurley Medical Center is the Official First Aid Provider of the Burton Race Series. Hurley originally partnered with the Veterans Honor Run in 2015. Starting in 2016, Hurley became partners with the Burton Race Series to not only provide first aid volunteers for all four Burton Race Series events, but also wellness information and swag to the participants.
Hurley has partnered with organizations to offer free flu shots to participants and volunteers of the Veterans Honor Run. In addition, the team at Hurley has also contributed to the Disabled American Veterans group from employee fund raisers during the Veterans Honor Run donation ceremony. The Burton Race Series Committee values and appreciates Hurley Medical Center’s shared value of raising health and wellness awareness throughout the Mid-Michigan region.
