The mile route included two upstream legs and one downstream leg. The morning swim was chilly, with overcast and potentially stormy skies and a water temperature below 70 degrees.
The entry fees benfitted the ALS Association and food donations benifited To Detroit, With Love.
To Detroit, With Love was established in 2017 to address neighborhood needs providing gently used clothing, food, and home goods to the less fortunate in our City. Through human connection and furnishings, it is the objective of To Detroit, With Love to turn houses into homes and neighbors into friends.
WAM Michigan – Make-a-Wish Foundation
Commitment to Community (CTC) is participating again this year in the Make-a-Wish Foundation’s annual bike ride for charity. Relatives of staff in DMW purchasing will be participating in the 300 Mile bike ride the last weekend in July.
Make-A-Wish®Michigan grants about one wish per day for a child with a critical illness. Make-A-Wish believes that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides Make-A-Wish in everything they do. It is their goal to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids in our Michigan communities.
Over the last 30 years, thousands of riders and volunteers have been a part of something special – this extraordinary and inspiring event that has helped make thousands of wishes come true. The WAM tour brings all types of people together who believe that wishes are life changing.
Commitment to Community (CTC)) is pleased and honored to be involved in such a worthy endeavor.
