Reliance One Grants a Wish for Calyn!

February 20, 2014

Auburn Hills, Michigan

The most rewarding part of owning a business is beyond celebrating success. The true feeling of victory comes from helping those around you when they are in need. The goal of Reliance One is to “build teams;” the mantra not only includes our clients teams, it includes building up the team in the community. “We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.” ― Mother Teresa

For the past year Reliance One has been raising money through various fundraisers to help make a dream come true through the Rainbow Connection. The Rainbow Connection, which is a Michigan based charity, was able to introduce Calyn, a 14 year old who was diagnosed with cancer, to the Reliance One Team. Through the program, Reliance One sponsored Calyn’s wish to travel to the Bahamas. “Choosing the Rainbow Connection for a fundraiser was easy; it is a great cause that benefits local children. As a parent, I cannot imagine the sacrifices that families have to endure when children are diagnosed with a life threatening illness. “said Jim Beath, President of Reliance One.

Calyn traveled with her family to the Atlantis resort where they were able to enjoy the beach, take advantage of all of the water slides, and even swim with the dolphins! “We are thrilled that Calyn was able to visit the Bahamas, and we’re very happy that we were able to help make that wish happen for her”, said Beath.
