In 2021, the Max Foundation solidified a partnership with Tim Denney of Level 5 Services. Based out of Crookston, Minnesota, Tim is a premium provider of training, facilitation, and consultation services in the upper Midwest region. The Max Foundation and its mission was a perfect fit with Tim’s passion for wellbeing for everybody, suicide prevention, connecting people with services, and trying to change the trajectory of people’s lives when they’re really struggling.
This year’s project was to work on brand marketing efforts and expanding to offer several Schools in northern Minnesota to the Coaches Care Project Clinics. Many student athletes are struggling with their mental health today. This impacts not only their athletic performance but also their school performance. The pressure they face to excel at their sport and their athletics can be significant and sometimes overwhelming.
Tim Denney went to Grygla, Badger, and Roseau schools this fall to offer coaches the tools they need so they can prepare to handle the student/athletes and the challenges they face in todays demanding world.
The clinics were a huge success and we plan to continue our efforts in reaching as many schools as possible in 2023.
