And now – he just climbed Stone Mountain and raised $1500 in the process!
At the age of 16, he was hit head-on by a drunk driver, leaving him paralyzed. He was actually pronounced dead at the scene – and WAS dead for 28 minutes – before a crash witness begged paramedics to try to revive him one more time…and it worked.
Michael is the first ever paralyzed person to complete a Spartan Race and this year, he had set out to be the first paralyzed person to compete in a Summer Spartan Death Race. He lasted almost 25 hours before he was eliminated.
