Synopsis

A motorcycle accident in 1978, left Mike then 20, a paraplegic and wheelchair user. Mike's 1986 book, "The Mike King Story", details the story of his trip pushing his wheelchair from Fairbanks, Alaska to Washington, D.C in 120 days. Mike shares his physical, emotional and spiritual journey as he pushed those 5,605.8 miles and discovered God's grace and love. Mike's love of physical activity continued after the trip and he went on to become a wheelchair athlete, competing in track and field and road racing at an elite level all over the world, including the Pan American Games and World Games. Mike also rediscovered his love of skiing and became an adaptive ski instructor and has provided instruction for people with disabilities including veterans through Disabled Sports USA and Baltimore Adaptive Recreation. He joined the staff of Joni and Friends in 2007 and participated in programs for people with disabilities throughout the East Coast until he moved to Texas in 2013. Mike is a frequent speaker in schools, universities, churches and business, promoting adaptive fitness and sports and disability awareness.
