Inspiration for Miles for Mike:

Mike was a kind, genuine and compassionate gentleman who was always there to offer help to anyone, especially his children, siblings, and friends. A hard-working man during the week, Mike turned to leisure on his days off and weekends. He enjoyed snowmobiling, boating, walking, fishing, traveling, dining out, and taking quiet Sunday drives to nowhere in particular with his beloved wife, Shirley. Mike handled his entire FTD journey in the only manner he knew, with grace, dignity, courage, and style, while somehow maintaining his friendly demeanor towards his loved ones. After fighting for 14 years, Mike ultimately lost his battle with FTD on June 16, 2020.

Our goal is to find a cure through research for this dreaded, debilitating disease to hopefully prevent others from suffering what Mike endured.

Help us stomp out FTD by walking with us at the first annual “Miles For Mike” 5K walk/run or by participating in other fundraising throughout the year.

Mike was truly a “SUPERHERO.”

His smile always said it all.
