It’s not that you have to swim the Straits of Mackinac (a 5-mile swim,) although Lila did that to raise money for Mentor Michigan, it’s that creating adventures can leave you fully engaged and present. Creating adventures, aligns you with your dreams and passions and convinces you that all things are possible
