More than the Northland’s largest Half Marathon – our annual Liberty Hospital Half Marathon and Jewell5K raises funds through sponsorships, race entry fees and donations to support our LiveWell grant program.  In 2019, the Liberty Hospital Foundation provided $100,000 in support to ten different community organizations that support our mission of improving the health, wellness, and care in the community. Your dollars have been hard at work.  Over the last quarter, nearly 1,000 lives have been touched by the work of our LiveWell Grantees – check out these stats below:
