BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM

EVENT: FIGHTERS4LIFE NOVEMBER SHOWCASE

EVENT DATE: Nov 28, 2015

THE STORY:

FIGHTING FOR ROCK STEADY BOXING NY/LA MR. MICHAEL P. PERILLO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gets his ring name from Nino Benvenuti.  Why? after a great career in the ring, did well in business afterwards, and then in retirement  worked at the hospice run by Mother Theresa. 

Michael believes as we do that: "If it does not challenge you, it will not change you"

In the boxing world – Muhammad Ali is a hero.   "He set goals for himself, he pushed himself past those goals, he spoke his mind, and fought for what he believed in."

Michael worked with kids and families in need, they did not have anyone at home who knew how to help them set positive goals and no one who could help them find their own self-confidence.

Michaels greatest accomplishments? "Having two grown daughters who are independent, hardworking, and kind.  Also, I lived through a lot of bullying as a kid in grammar school.  I overcame that, found my voice, and learned to believe in myself."
