More about the event in Cole's own words:
August 9th will be a day celebrating health, mobility, and competition; all supporting an amazing organization, the Swim with Mike Scholarship Fund. This fund is designed for varsity or collegiate athletes who have suffered a life-changing injury or illness, rendering them unable to compete in their sports.
My life-changing injury occurred August 11th, 2011, rendering me a quadriplegic, and since then our community has rallied behind me time and time again, showing me the value of selflessness and giving. As a recipient of the Swim with Mike scholarship, I know first-hand the impact it has in so many injured athletes’ lives and that raising funds for other "Coles" across America is the perfect way to give back some of what has been given to me.
Our community loves sports, friendly competition, and helping others and that is what the Roll with Cole Sport-A-Thon is all about. I want the world to see the amazing things we can do here in Richmond the way I have experienced it. Register today and come on out on August 9th!
