In 2022, Greco ran the NYC Marathon and finished with $10k raised to support a camp that helps children cope with the loss of a family member. The race followed less than a year after Greco's own mother's death. He says this race and the donation it supported are his proudest achievements.
Greco has come to understand that fitness can be a powerful actor in dealing with loss, grief, or even daily stressors. His Made Tougher mentality is a reminder that "it's not about being better, or tougher, than anyone except who I was yesterday." Pushing past his perceived limitations is part of Greco's growth, not necessarily his publicity. He's a reminder that a fitness journey doesn't always need to end on a podium (although he certainly doesn't shy away from podiums!). Some journeys are personal, intimate, and self driven. MudGear's community commits itself to the process, never just to the prize.
