Meet Marc Mero
Many people can relate to Marc’s story about growing up in a broken family and dreaming of a better future. His dreams for a life outside his humble beginnings led him to write his goals into existence and, at a young age, he achieved success in athletics with hockey and football, then was on the path to becoming a professional boxer.

Following an accident, Marc’s athletic career was sidelined during years of rebellion, substance abuse, and bad choices. Even at the pinnacle of sport’s success as a professional wrestler, Marc continued to make negative choices that impacted his personal life and career.

After a series of personal tragedies and the loss of more than 30 friends and family members largely due to their bad choices, Marc felt compelled to reach out to students and encourage them to live healthy, compassion-ate, purposeful lives. In 2007, the nonprofit organization, Champion of Choices was born.
