Help Olympian/Firefighter make it to Switzerland

Local Firefighter, 3 x Olympian and National record holder needs our help. Let’s help him make continue to make history and seize and opportunity of a lifetime.

My name is Mikel Thomas. I recently got accepted to the #1 sports management program in the world; The AISTS Master of Advanced Studies in Sport Administration and Technology founded and endorsed by the International Olympic Committee, in Lausanne, Switzerland. Truly a lifetime opportunity as the Olympic Games are coming and with Lausanne being the Olympic capital and home to over 50 international organization this would be the right place to contribute to happens in sport on all around the world.

I have been blessed by sports to gain skills and characteristics that are indispensable; hard work, communication, goal setting, teamwork, discipline and so much more that would allow me to be successful in this role and beyond. My heart to serve and passion for sports creates a desire to use my experiences to help elevate others. 

I want to help create programs that empower our youth and community and to share my joy for sport. I had no desire to go back to school but God kept putting it on my heart. I followed his lead and decided if I'm going to do this, I'm going for the top. I only applied to one Graduate Program, and by his grace this door is open before me. 

From defying odds as and athlete becoming an Olympian, to Firefighting and graduating  in the top in my class awarded for my efforts and accomplishments, I give my all and have been able to pull as many with me as possible forward and aim to do the same.
