Team Altair Continues Journey to Support MS Society

Altair Multiple Sclerosis Bike, Walk, and Golf Teams had a great start this year with successful onboarding of over 10 members in the Annual MS Golf event and over 20 team members in MS Bike and Walk events around Michigan to support the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society!

Altair has been an active and proud contributor to the MS Society for the past 19 years, and our goal every year is to raise at least $10,000 for the MS Society – Michigan Chapter. Together with local team sponsors, we have surpassed this goal every year.


The innovative fundraising season has started well for Team Altair and the MS Society too. Earlier this spring, our team organized a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser the weekend before Easter with breakfast food featuring Chris Cakes’ Flying Pancakes, an egg hunt, bounce house and a visit from the Easter bunny! Altairians and their families together enjoyed the entertainment and activities all morning. In May, Team Altair held a Bake Sale and Flower Sale for Mother’s Day with homemade baked goods from many employee volunteers, beautiful flowers from a local nursery, and a raffle with exceptional prizes.


Furthermore, the MS Golf Outing was recently held on May 14th and 12 members enjoyed a pleasant day of golf and fundraising at the Pheasant Run Golf Club in Canton, MI, where the course gladly supported them, and has been a great host for the Altair MS Golf Team for 4 times now!

The team has successfully raised over $3,200 so far with more exciting events to follow:

June 6th – June 7th
MS Bike – West Michigan (Holland)
