DPT is proud to support our West Michigan Veterans through sponsoring an event benefiting Folds of Honor, especially a week before Independence Day, for which so many have sacrificed for us to continue to enjoy. Folds of Honor has a tremendous mission to provide educational support to spouses and children of America’s fallen and wounded soldiers.
This year was West Michigan’s 1st Annual Patriot Golf Tournament at Sunnybrook Country Club. DPT’s Jack Kelly, Amy Flick, Henry Morley, and James Reinhardt participated in the tournament put on by a host of volunteers and organizer Brad Laackman. What a great time had by all, supporting a great organization and cause!
Jack Kelly probably shot the longest drive of his life – one of the most unusual features of an event based on supporting our military was the ability, under close supervision, to “drive” a golf ball from a rifle. Here’s the mark that was left on the ball after its 360 yard firing:
DPT is not only happy to support a great patriotic cause, but this is also part of our broader core values of community involvement. We have supported a number of local organizations, ranging from Bethany Christian Services, to Grand Rapids Active Commute Week. If you’d like to learn more about that, please visit our Community Involvement page.

DPT's second year participating as a team in Run 4 a Cause was a good one... The day started early, and the results were well worth the effort that each of the participants and volunteers put forward. Run 4 a Cause achieved their best year ever for participants and sponsors. They had 481 runners this year and raised roughly $27,000 for Helen DeVos Children's Hospital! With the revenue that was generated, they will be impacting so many children.
We at DPT are proud to support this event.
Race director, Denise Hamill says:
"I actually started the race to get involved in some community events and wanted to personally and as a company give back to the community. I felt this was a really great place to give, promote good health and fitness and get my kids involved."
Will you be joining us next year?
