At PTI we realize that as we go about our day-to-day business, it’s easy to lose sight of the trials facing those in our community and in the world around us. That's why we at PTI provide outlets for our employees to get involved. By encouraging a positive “giveback” attitude, we know we can have a tremendous impact and influence on the quality of peoples’ lives. Here are just a few events that we're proud to say we've been an integral part of:

Tara Grant 5K Walk & Run

Tara Grant 5K Walk & Run

PTI Employees will participate in The Tara Grant Run/Walk which began in 2007 as a way for Tara’s family to use her legacy to promote domestic violence awareness. The event kicks off National Domestic Violence Month in October.

Did you know one pint of blood can save up to three lives? That’s why PTI hosts blood drives with the American Red Cross. PTI employees are strongly committed to giving back to the community and patients across the nation this gift of life.
Heart Chase

Heart Chase

The Heart Chase supports the American Heart Association’s goal of helping to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans, building longer and healthier lives and working to reduce deaths from heart disease and stroke.

What is the Heart Chase is exactly? It’s a fun and frenzied hunt of hidden rewards and healthy lives; it’s like a giant scavenger hunt! Teams of 2-5 people compete in a chase throughout the community in search of hidden donations. Each team faces 10 checkpoint challenges along the way and tracks their progress on the Hear Chase Mobile Game App. The team with the most points at the end of the clock wins.

PTI Engineered Plastics was excited to have several teams competing in this first annual Macomb County Heart Chase challenge. Best of all, it was fun and interactive way to help our community raise funds for heart disease.
