We are very proud to have sponsored one of our team members, Brian Muscat, on the Wish-A-Mile Bicycle Tour in July. Just had to share what Brian told us about his experience:
"Wish-A-Mile Bicycle Tour, part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, is an event like no other in Michigan. Their mission is to grant the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions. It is an amazing experience, to say the least, to be part of this three day, three hundred mile bicycle ride. The ride takes place through forty-six townships, eighteen cities, ten counties and one amazing state: Michigan.
It is difficult to describe what this bicycle ride is really about and how incredible this tour is unless you have participated in it. 1000 of your best friends that you see once a year come together for one great cause. The camaraderie created through this event will last a lifetime.
When the finish line appears right around that last curve, you begin to realize something that started 299 miles ago: it was not about the miles you rode or the lifelong friendships you created. It is about the one person whose life you just touched. It is about the Wish-A-Mile child you rode for through the rain, the wind, and the cold. All that stuff doesn't matter when they place that medal around your neck. What matters most is that child’s amazing smile!
I am truly grateful for being able to experience and be a part of this life changing event that makes a difference in someone’s life. This was my first year participating in this event, with hopefully more rides to come."

Alpha Metal Finishing is very proud to be a sponsor of Debbie Haynes in the Relay For Life event held annually in Milan, MI.
Relay For Life is an association that was created to help the American Cancer Society. It is an event that is held once a year to support the survivors and help find the cure for all cancers. As we know, cancer never sleeps, so on this one day out of the year we ask the teams that participate to not sleep for 24 hours. Debbie Haynes, Production Specialist at Alpha Metal Finishing, has served in the Relay For Life event in Milan for many years on other teams. She is honored to now have her own team that is raising funds to battle against cancer. Debbie shares her passion for this event openly: “I am proud to be a part of it. On this special day we do one lap for all the survivors which I do with my head held high knowing that I have battled the same thing that they have.”
“At Relay For Life there is a lot of hand holding, crying and laughing as we remember the people that we have lost or those who have survived. This is just a breath-taking event for me.” On event day the track is lined with luminary bags which are for those who have survived cancer and those who have lost the battle against this terrible disease.
Debbie’s support for Relay For Life is deeply personal: “I have been fighting cancer since I was 21 years old. My mother had a double mastectomy in her 30's and I just lost the greatest mother-in-law in the world to this terrible disease.” Debbie is an overcomer and she proudly supports the fight against cancer. Alpha Metal Finishing is proud to support Debbie in her cause.
