Michael is a 16 year fundraising professional/veteran that shares a strong passion for cancer research. Having lost dozens of friends and family to cancer, including most recently, his father, Michael is committed to finding and sharing the cure for cancer in his lifetime. He is inspired by the selflessness and altruism that is displayed by the Champions of Hope Gala Committee and Sponsors. Through their generosity of time and spirit, the American Cancer Society is reaching goals that will fund dozens of researchers in Colorado, enabling them to find new and innovative ways to treat and defeat cancer.
A fifth generation Coloradoan, Michael enjoys the mountains of his beloved home state- skiing on them in the winter and camping in them in summer. Michael is also a big fan of travel and hopes to make the trip to Africa in the next year to go cage diving with Great Whites and on safari as well.
This is Michael’s second year working on the Champions of Hope Ball and he looks forward to a great and successful event.
