Lake Cable Takes Aim At Pediatric Cancer

If you live in the Midwest long enough, you know there’s always that special, first Spring-like day of the year in which the temperatures reach 60’s and 70’s. Sunglasses pop on. The great outdoors look a lot more friendly than fearful. And as luck would have it, this occasion also happened to fall on the very day of one of our favorite charitable traditions: The 4th Annual Runzel Brothers Spring Shoot.

Lake Cable’s Air Missions: When Delivery Matters…

On any given day, there’s a good chance you’ll find Lake Cable Founder Bill Runzel flying employees to our plants, picking up customers in other cities or taking off toward an industry trade show.

In addition to making wire, Bill’s a seasoned Instrument Rated pilot who has logged over 3,000 hours of flight time dating back to college. When it comes down to it, he finds flying to be the most effective way to get from point A to point B in one day.

But sometimes Bill goes to some very special destinations that aren’t in that usual flight path. Like when a combat veteran is severely wounded and needs help making a connection they’ve been waiting for in what feels like a lifetime.
