The 2017 GRIT Trailblazers!



Will Cligenpeel

Will grew up in rural Vermont, immersed in nature. A Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis 5 years ago didn't dampen his sense of adventure or slow him down. Will continues to push his limits, even if it requires adaptive equipment. He enjoys helping others realize they never have to give up activities they love!
