A message from Michael DiGrigoli:
I'm participating in "2021 Appalachian Trail Thru Hike for Lemon Bay Wrestling" benefiting Lemon Bay Wrestling Club. Please support me by pledging per mile during my fundraising campaign. I believe in Lemon Bay Wrestling Club's mission and I'm excited to earn your support with every mile. Please help me reach the campaign goal of $35,000 by pledging now. I really appreciate your support. Thank you!
On March 22nd of 2021, I will be attempting to do a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. I will start in Georgia, at Springer Mountain, and walk roughly 2,200 miles through 14 states, ending at Mt. Katahdin, in Maine. I am a wrestling coach at Lemon Bay High School in Englewood, Florida, and each year with my wrestlers, some new and some old, I try to inspire, mentor, and encourage them to be more than they thought they could be. I preach toughness and discipline, through love and hard work, and I get them to set their expectations high. I have always lead by example. I DO THE WORK WITH THEM! They see me as a 51-year-old doing the work, and I believe this is the best way to reach them and get their best. But I have to listen to my own words! I still am young and healthy and should be setting goals for myself just like my wrestlers. I have to practice what I preach! What better way to do so than to do something difficult! If I am going to tell my kids to get tough, then I should show them myself. Walking the Appalachian Trail has been a Bucket List item for me for most of my life. So, I am going to take on this adventure and do so by raising money for our wrestling program. Please join me on this thru-hike, and make a pledge, and help me raise money for Lemon Bay Wrestling. 100% of what is raised will go right back to our kids, for camps, gear, travel, etc. I am setting a goal of $25,000, and I believe we can blow this out of the park. I will make it to Mt. Katahdin. Who will make a pledge, and follow me on this journey?
