Michael began 2019 by donating partial proceeds of his book to Special Olympics Canada. Michael then jumped on a train and took a trip to Brockville and was interviewed during an event organized by the Brockville and District Association for Community Involvement. He continues to speak at various elementary schools across the Niagara Region. His message of inclusion and not giving up has been contagious. He had the opportunity to speak to several classes of students—who wish to be teachers—at Brock University. They have been very encouraging and supportive of Michael's inspiring story. In addition, Michael spent an evening with teachers. His strong voice and being a role model was shared as he spoke about his book/life.
