SilverSummit Healthplan, a Nevada managed care organization that exists to improve the health of its members through focused, compassionate and coordinated care and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Centene Corporation (NYSE: CNC), announced today a partnership with ReDirect Youth Outreach and a joint donation drive being held through July 15.

Through the SilverSummit Healthplan Community Investment Program, ReDirect Youth Outreach was awarded a grant of $75,000 to support socially related health needs, including to provide youth recreation to improve health outcomes in adolescents. Founded in 2018, ReDirect Youth Outreach is a non-profit organization that supports and serves at-risk youth in the community through fitness and boxing to create an outlet for kids’ emotions, build confidence and navigate adversity.

“The word ‘grateful’ reflects how truly excited and thankful we are,” said ReDirect Youth Outreach Founder Marcell LaGrone. “The funding from SilverSummit Healthplan will help us elevate our programs and reach more young people through our impactful programs and services.”

The “Load up the Boxing Ring!” donation drive aims to garner community support and gather donations for the items needed to participate in ReDirect Youth Outreach programs. Community members are encouraged to stop by to “toss” donations into the boxing ring, particularly including hygiene products, athletic shoes, socks, athletic shorts and t-shirts, reusable water bottles, sports drinks and non-perishable protein snacks.

Community members may drop off donations from 8 – 10 a.m. or 2:30 – 7 p.m. through Monday, July 15 at 1270 E. Plumb Lane, Suite C, Reno, NV 89502. For more information, please visit https://redirectathletics.com/.
