Unique basketball camp

At age 16, Mike Simmel had a seizure at basketball camp and was told that because of his epilepsy, he couldn’t be there. He vowed that he would help kids and young adults with perceived disabilities feel included and empowered. Now Mike runs an inclusive basketball camp, Bounce Out The Stigma Project, where children with unique issues can learn social skills, confidence, coordination, and how to work as a team.
