Whom does the Levine JCC Kids
The Levine JCC Kids Triathlon will
directly support the rehabilitation programs at Levine
Children’s Hospital. These programs are available to infants and children of all walks of
life. After a child suffers a significant injury or illness, they often need
inpatient rehabilitation services to regain the strength and functional skills
necessary to return home or to school. Levine Children’s Hospital provides the
region’s only comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation services for children and
adolescents who have experienced a debilitating illness or injury. With a
continuity of care that is unparalleled, LCH offers high level of care
After release from the hospital, LCH patients have the opportunity to participate
in the Adaptive Sports and Adventures Program, which is a part of Carolinas Rehabilitation. This program, open to
anyone in the community, is designed to challenge youth (and adults) with
physical disabilities to develop skills that will lead to and enhance an active
and productive lifestyle – one without barriers.
On May 31, 2015, the Sandra and Leon Levine Jewish Community Center (Levine JCC) hosted the 4th Annual Kids Triathlon. Over $68,000 was raised to benefit rehabilitation programs at Levine Children’s Hospital and the Adaptive Sports and Adventures Program – making 2015 the most successful year for the Kids Triathlon to-date. Many thanks go to everyone who made the 4th Annual LJCC Kids Triathlon so successful!
