Two years ago, I didn’t have a direction for my life. The Swim with Mike scholarship enabled me to pursue my masters of business administration (MBA), which has added tremendous professional value to my life and provided the springboard for advancing my career. I am graduating in two months and will be taking on the business world full steam ahead. Overcoming the challenges of that program have given me the confidence that I can achieve just as much, if not more than I did before my injury. This would not have been possible if it weren’t for the support and assistance that I received from Swim with Mike. The community that surrounds this organization can be described as family. They were there to motivate and challenge me to overcome my adversity and set my goals high. They have always been there to provide a network of support when I need it, but they too need help. That is why I am here encouraging you to join the Swim with Mike family and donate to a cause that truly is life changing.
