Corporation presents Rod Haneline and
Leader Dog Hawk with 2,500 tokens for
use on the Detroit People Mover.

When Rod Haneline, Leader Dog's programs & services chief, contacted the Detroit People Mover to purchase 500 handicap tokens to be used by our instructors and clients, he thought he was just making another daily phone call.

But during the call Rod learned that the People Mover was soon going to celebrate its 25th year. He was then asked to speak at the celebration to share how getting to train our clients and dogs on the People Mover has benefitted Leader Dog.

When Rod arrived at the celebration, he was surprised with a gift of 2,500 tokens—approximately a five year supply for Leader Dog.

We would like to thank the Detroit People Mover for their kind donation, which we have already started putting to good use.
