The Michael Perruccio Wrestling Foundation
Michael Perruccio, 30, passed away on March 5, 2023, after a motorcycle accident in
Phuket, Thailand. Living his dream and pursuing his passion for mixed martial arts, Michael was training Muay Thai in Thailand. Growing up in Pelham, NH, he started wrestling at a young age. Michael attended Pelham High School where he was a member and captain of the wrestling team, becoming a three-time state champion and three-time New England qualifier. Following high school, Michael attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) where he continued his wrestling career as a three-year captain and three-time all-regional placer. Upon graduation, Michael continued his involvement with the WPI wrestling program as a regular-season assistant coach followed by the head coach of the WPI wrestling club team.
Michael served as a true inspiration and mentor to those around him. Throughout his life, he motivated countless people, both on and off the mats, by modeling discipline, hard work, integrity, and dedication.
To continue his legacy and devotion to wrestling, we, Michael’s family, are setting up a long-term development foundation in his name to support, build, and maintain the New Hampshire wrestling community for years to come. We are in the process of securing our 501(c) status in partnership with the New Hampshire Wrestling Officials Association (NHWOA). We thank you for your donations and for helping to keep Michael’s spirit alive.
