Hurley Medical Center Partnership

The Burton Race Series is pleased to announce a new partnership! Hurley Medical Center is teaming up with us as the official first aid provider of the Burton Race Series. Hurley Medical Center was the First Aid Sponsor for the 2015 Veterans Honor Run, not only staffing the first aid tent with volunteer nurses, but also offering free wellness screenings for participants, volunteers and supporters of the VHR. In addition, they provided some really cool water bottles and tote bags to the runners and walkers. We look forward to having Hurley present at all the Burton Race Series events.
