Lover of God, the outdoors and helping others, Michael Harris leads Seasons of Hope in its efforts to help those suffering with terminal illness and disabilities to experience life changing outdoor excursions. He hails from the Panama City corner of Family Life Nation.
8 years ago, Michael and his dad, Johnny, began helping other organizations with Life Hunts and fishing trips. In 2008 they decided to start their own organization and the idea for Seasons of Hope was born. Tragedy struck in March of 2009 when Michael himself became disabled. While helping a friend build a pole barn, 23 sheets of plywood crashed down on him, breaking his neck and rendering him a c-5 c-7 quadriplegic.
Though the tables have turned, Michael’s dream was accomplished and in 2010 Seasons of Hope became official. Along with the SOH team, his family, including son Brayden, and willing volunteers, they have aided many in creating lasting memories through hunting, fishing and outdoor adventures.
