BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM

EVENT: Fighters4Life Showcase

EVENT DATE: Nov 16, 2013

THE STORY:

As an attorney in the Inspector General’s Office, Mike makes a difference daily by working to crack down on corruption and fraud in the city.

Honestly, that would be a noble enough pursuit in its own right but enough isn’t really enough for Mike. You see, Mike is the driven and competitive type, someone with a strong commitment to helping others.

A lifelong baseball fan, actually working for the Mets before attending law school, he collaborated with close friend and former MLB manager Manny Acta to create the ImpACTA Foundation.

Functioning out of the Dominican Republic, ImpACTA works to systematically and positively impact youths by; building baseball fields, awarding scholarships and providing general mentorship for the kids of the DR.

The ultimate goal being to help children rise above poverty and be able to boldly follow their dreams.

It’s no surprise that he calls his work with the ImpACTA Foundation his greatest accomplishment.

In addition to a love for baseball, Mike is also quite the boxing aficionado and as a fan for ages he jumped at the opportunity to get in the ring in the name of doing what he's always done, helping people.

His dedication to others and continued drive to make a difference are truly inspiring and would no doubt make his parents, who he notes are his role models, extremely proud.
