Way to go #HighFivesAthlete Mike Schwarz for continuing to share B.A.S.I.C.S. documentary #HelmetsAreCool!
Mike gave a presentation at Union St. School, Springfield, VT. to 35 students and teacher, Vanessa Stern, in the 5th grade. They gave out stickers, Helmets Are Cool pamphlets, and swag. Another presentation is planned at Chester School soon.
While attending his Senior year at University of Vermont, Schwarz crashed while competing in a quarter pipe snowboarding championship. He was in a coma for many weeks, diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. He spent the next year in a rehab hospital recovering in the gym, the pool and the recumbent bike. Since the injury, Schwarz has gained back most of his living skills and is enjoying the positive growth his custom sock business El SchwarEZ Designs.
