No business is too small to benefit from having its own sounding board...call it an Advisory Board, a Mastermind Group or a Success Team. Call it whatever you wish but understand that this concept can be a tremendous catalyst for growth... The Manta Team
Mission: A business development and resource group whose primary mission is to mentor and foster business growth and development through relevant dialogue and topic discussions.

About Miracle League
Every young baseball fan dreams of hitting their first home run as a packed stadium cheers them on.
But for some kids, a physical, cognitive, or other challenge prevents them from joining local leagues and playing baseball with their friends. The Miracle League removes the barriers that keep children with disabilities off the baseball field and lets them experience the joy of America’s favorite pastime. Since the main barriers for these children arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional youth leagues, Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, synthetic turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries.
But it’s more than playing a game. The Miracle League is about making new friends in an inclusive atmosphere, building self-esteem and being treated just like other kids. To help the athletes, we use a “buddy” system – pairing each player with an able-bodied peer. What results is a bond that cannot be described. During the winter months, the friendships and bonds formed continue through specialized bowling leagues and dance groups.
Funds raised will support programming at The Miracle League of Michigan in Southfield and
The Miracle League of North Oakland at Friendship Park in Lake Orion, opening in the summer of 2019.
