Cascades Rapids Swim Team
Milan High School Girls Track Team
Milan Maroon Heat (Milan Youth League)
Summerfield Recreation
YPS Sliders/Ypsilanti National Little League

“The ASK mission of keeping kids safe and healthy is one we love to support,” said Jeff Gourlie, president and CEO of Kramer-Triad. “We are proud of these teams for their alignment with that mission as well, and hope teams within our communities continue to request many more sponsorships this year.”
