Marc Mero experienced his first crisis at age eight when his parents divorced. He grew up in a single-family home in a poor section of New York, but wrote down his dreams and goals, setting his sights on athletics. Marc worked hard to achieve success in hockey, football, boxing and professional wrestling. After reaching the pinnacle of sports entertainment as a WCW and WWE Wrestling Champion, Marc suffered enormous loss and learned that money and fame can’t buy happiness. “It’s NOT what’s in your pocket; it’s what’s in your HEART that truly matters!”
The tragic loss of more than 30 of Marc Mero’s close friends and family members – largely due to lifestyle choices and negative behaviors – spurred Marc into action. He wanted people to be aware of the consequences of their choices. “It only takes using drugs one time to kill you – then your family and friends have to suffer and live with the pain of your choice everyday!” Marc is determined to keep students off of the “death list” he speaks of during his presentation – helping young people realize that life is precious and relationships should be cherished.
Today, Marc Mero selflessly gives of his time and talent to impact young lives with amazing results. Through the nonprofit organization he founded in 2007 called Champion of Choices, this self-proclaimed “Happiest Person on the Planet” shares his powerful story of tragedy and triumph, speaking candidly about where his good and bad choices took him. His anti-bullying, substance abuse, and suicide prevention message reaches students at a heart-level during a dynamic stage production. Lives are saved and changed by his honest portrayal and courage to stand up, step up, and speak up. Thousands of young people credit Marc Mero with giving them hope, inspiring them to live healthy, successful lives by empowering them to make positive choices.
