Alumni Recipients

ALUMNI Recipient Stories

A Tribute to The Ripple Effect

Alumni recipients are a community of heroes: Paralympians, doctors, lawyers, mentors, motivational speakers, founders, advocates, and community organizers. The gift of education plants the seed for a lifelong journey of realizing opportunities, and there are no limits to what Swim With Mike Foundation recipients can achieve. Over 40 years, we have granted 271 scholarships for physically challenged athletes across 142 universities nationwide.

We encourage you to read their stories and gain inspiration from their perseverance in the face of tremendous adversity. Through adversity comes strength and our scholarship recipients have channeled that inner strength into a building wave of impact in the community.
