Matty Gregg – Santa Clara, California
How does this person typify a humanitarian as described in the definition above?
Matty raised over $30,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project last year leading up to World’s Toughest Mudder. He personally bankrolled an “orphan tent” at world’s toughest mudder with his own money and even when others took credit for it he never once publicly mentioned how much money he spent on it.
He helped get a team of wounded warriors to world’s toughest mudder last year with his own money. He quietly and selflessly helped someone in need get to World’s toughest mudder and has not yet been paid back (and I doubt he will).
