It is hard to believe that Mike Lyden has been gone for nearly eight months. The highly regarded and very accomplished former diving coach at the University of Kentucky succumbed to Cancer in early April after a hard fought two-year battle. He was a HUGE LOSS not only to his family and friends -- but to the entire diving community as well.
A fund was established to collect donations in Mike's name for the benefit of his wife and three children. The response from the diving community has been nothing short of incredible. To date, more than $30,000.00 has been donated to the "Iron Mike" Fund.
His wife Emily and his three children Jessica, Jack and Brittany are so grateful for the outpouring of support and they want to say thanks to all who contributed or helped in some way during these difficult times. The Lyden Family will always be a part of the "diving family" and we continue to keep them in our thoughts and prayers over the holiday season.
It is not too late to contribute -- you can still send your tax deductible donation (check made payable to "Wildcat Aquatics, Inc. / Iron Mike Fund") to:
IRON MIKE FUND

THANK YOU DIVING COMMUNITY FOR YOUR VERY GENEROUS SUPPORT!!
