Michael Lewis, is the current “Team Ambassador” for the New Orleans Saints. He is a former wide receiver for the Saints and return specialist for both the Saints and the San Francisco ‘49ers. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2002. Striding For Your Dreams Foundation was established in 2011 as a mentoring organization to share the thoughts, goals, skills and resources of Michael Lewis to assist and motivate aspiring young adults. It is our hope that we might instill in todays youth good work ethic in school, sports, and life. We at Striding For Your Dreams Foundation firmly believe that it is our responsibility to help positively shape the lives of our youth. The core of what we are founded on is easy: EDUCATION + DEDICATION = SUCCESS. We truly believe that “A dream is a goal without dedication”. With a good education and a lot of dedication you can achieve the greatest of things. Our message is simple, if we can motivate the community to invest in our youth, then we can motivate our youth to not just dream but succeed. Our Foundation uses sports and outreach events as a forum to reach out to children and the community. Michael Lewis believes that children are this world's greatest asset and with a little direction every child will be “Striding For Their Dreams”
