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.’

Recently honored by the Prime Minister, the House of Commons and the Legislative Assembly of Ontario and celebrated by Canadians from coast to coast in this national achievement, Mike is the 2022 recipient of the Mental Health Leadership Award by the Mood Disorder Society of Canada.

A remarkable story of resilience and ‘the comeback’ following a devastating health crisis that left Mike immobile and unable to walk in 2019. Outside of making Canadian history and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for Canadian youth mental health programming and services in what became the largest mental health awareness campaign led by an individual in Canadian history, this athlete and advocate is educating and motivating audiences to achieve their own excellence through his messaging of resilience, perseverance and drive.

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