About Mike Shoreman

Challenges don’t scare Mike. As the first Athlete with Disabilities to cross all 5 Great Lakes in the summer of 2022, this athlete’s reputation was built on overcoming systemic barriers to achieve the ‘impossible.’

2023 is shaping up to be a banner year for Mike Shoreman. His mission to become the first person with a disability to cross all five Great Lakes is the subject of a new documentary that is making its debut at film festivals around the world.

“When Hope Breaks Through”, is directed by award-winning filmmaker Matthew Wagner and the film explores the Canadian mental health crisis by following Mike’s journey. The film is beautiful, inspiring and also raw and real as it documents the highs and lows of Mike’s journey beginning with a devastating health crisis that left Mike immobile and unable to walk in 2019.

Mike’s crusade became one of the largest mental health awareness campaigns led by an individual in Canadian history. This athlete and advocate is now educating and motivating audiences to achieve their own excellence through his keynotes focused on mental health resilience, perseverance and drive.

Clearly a person who understands the value of self belief and resilience, you will want to lean forward when Mike takes the stage.
