From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Michael G. May (born 1954) is an American business executive and sports enthusiast who was blinded by a chemical explosion at the age of 3 but regained partial vision in 2000, at 46, after cornea transplants and pioneering stem cell procedure by San Francisco ophthalmologist Daniel Goodman. In 1999 he founded the Sendero Group [1], in Davis, CA, which employs many individuals who are blind or visually impaired. Sendero has assisted those with sight disabilities by producing the first accessible GPS solution for blind persons. Their technology received the Consumer Electronics Show "New Innovations Award" in 2004.

Among his many accomplishments, May holds the record for downhill skiing by a totally blind person (racing at 65 mph). He competed in alpine skiing at the 1984 Winter Paralympics and won three bronze medals in the downhill, giant slalom, and combination events.[2] He has a wife, Jennifer, and two sons, Carson and Wyndham.

In 2006, journalist Robert Kurson wrote a book on May, Crashing Through, expanded from an article he did for Esquire [3], which is being adapted into a motion picture.[4] Crashing Through was released on May 15, 2007.

Possibly the best soccer player to ever come through Mason. He is a true Bulldog who plays soccer for the Olivet College Comets.
