Passing of Mike Hamm, DNWM Board Member & Friend

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that our friend, colleague and long-time board member, Mike Hamm has passed away.

Born with Cerebral Palsy, Mike influenced and challenged our Center for Independent Living in ways that are everlasting while encompassing the epitome of the Independent Living philosophy.  Mike was an incredible advocate, with professional experiences that positively impacted our services and focus on rural communities. In his honor and in recognition of Mike’s love for the outdoors, we have established the Mike Hamm Memorial Fund for Accessible Outdoor Recreation. May his love and passion for the Independent Living movement live on in all that we continue to do and accomplish together.
