Mike Schlappi
President, Mike Schlappi Communications


Mike Schlappi has an inspiring message for every American, young or old: “Just because you can’t stand up, doesn’t mean you can’t stand out.” Confined to a wheelchair, he is spreading that word to audiences ranging from students to CEOs and from rookies to Olympic champions. He is a four-time Paralympic medalist and a two-time World Champion in wheelchair basketball. Holding degrees in business administration and healthcare as well as finance, Mike is also the founder and director of the Wheelchair Sports Foundation, a non-profit organization that serves disabled athletes.
