Team Freedom Cares Employee Spotlight: Coleman Hundeby

California native and resident, Coleman Hundeby, has been in the mortgage industry since 1997. He began his career with Freedom Mortgage in 2011 as the first-ever Loan Advisor hired for the Orange County Call Center and today has grown to become the site’s VP of Sales.

Coleman comes from a family of swimmers; he competitively swam for UCLA during his undergrad years. His late brother, Chad Hundeby, held the 1994 world record for fastest time in swimming the English Channel – and even managed to once swim 55 miles straight without stopping!

For Coleman, one important event that combines the water with philanthropy is the Alcatraz Swim for Sight. Founded in 2011, the goal of Alcatraz Swim for Sight is to help raise awareness for those with visual impairments, which affects over 285 million people worldwide. Coleman’s best friend from childhood Ron, organized this nonprofit with his wife Lorie, who suffers from retinitis pigmentosa, an inherited retinal disease slowly causing her to lose her sight. You can learn more about Lorie’s story, here.

Coleman has participated in several of the organization’s swims, including the inaugural swim with nine other people. The event has continued to nearly double every year in size along with the amount of funds raised. According to Coleman, “My last swim was in 2018, but with this being the tenth anniversary and the last swim for the cause, I had to suit back up.”

Over the years, the fundraiser has raised about $750,000, but their goal is to reach a lifetime amount of $1 million by the end of this year’s anniversary event! If you would like to donate or participate in the October 23rd 2021 swim, visit alcatrazswimforsight.org for more information.
