Special Olympics of Michigan

One of the biggest influences on my life has been my older brother, Mick. Mick was four years older than I and born intellectually disabled. I did not realize until my late 20s what an incredible, positive influence he had been on my life. I can summarize best in these three words; empathy, compassion, and acceptance. He faced challenges every day of his life and always just rolled with it.

Mick passed away in 2011. I continue to support Mick’s legacy through my support of Special Olympics of Michigan. Mick was an amazing athlete and loved Special Olympics.
