First annual "Make a Weight Challenge" results in 640 pounds shed and over $20,000 raised for Greg Strobel Leadership Academy

by Greg Strobel Leadership Academy

The 2021 Greg Strobel “Make A Weight” Challenge was a huge success! The support and participation of those involved helped raise over $20,000 and achieve weight loss results exceeding 640 pounds from the participants who reported their results. This first annual event was a tremendous experience for Greg’s family, friends, colleagues, and all of those in the wrestling community who respected and cared for him greatly. It created a sense of family and community where those involved could reminisce and share stories of Greg, while participating in a cause that honors the messages and teachings Greg valued and stood for throughout his life.

Funds raised during this campaign directly support and contribute to the Greg Strobel “Beyond the Mat” Leadership Academy. Founded on the core beliefs of one of our sports greatest athletes and coaches, the Greg Strobel Leadership Academy is a training and development program focused on supporting our Senior Level USA Wrestling Athletes by learning, discussing, and sharing experiences around the core values of family, accountability, discipline, and creating a lifetime of good habits. The curriculum for this program is focused on continuing Greg’s legacy of teaching others and unleashing human potential in all areas of life for current and future National Team athletes.

On behalf of Greg Strobel’s family and the entire USA Wrestling community, we appreciate your contributions to this effort.
