Today’s #SameHere🤙Hero is the newest member of the Celeb Alliance: Mike Mauti.
Mike played four stellar seasons for Penn State & as a true leader during a difficult time in the school’s history, was instrumental in holding the program together. Despite major injuries & all the noise surrounding the school, he became a first team All-American, was voted the best LB in the Big Ten, & was drafted by the Vikings in 2013. He played five seasons in the NFL.
Perhaps what he’s most proud of, however, is how he’s risen over challenges – most notably & publicly, the autoimmune disease Ulcerative Colitis, as well as the removal of his colon. He, like many of our everyday heroes who’ve shared their physical health challenges, has an unbelievable perspective about how those challenges affect our MH.
He’s going to go on to help so many more people now & we are thrilled to have him as a member of the Alliance. Check out his full story on the phone page or the Celeb page under #SameHere Alliances.
