1. Why he ROCKS?!
“Three years ago I was on the way to a Minnesota Wild game a few days before Christmas… as I sat in rush hour along 35E I noticed the Children’s Hospital building and noticed a light go off in a room. In the back of my head I was concerned a sick child may miss Christmas while in the hospital and got to thinking… I want to spend my free time volunteering at the Children’s Hospital”
2. Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering?
“I spend a majority of my free time with my Husky puppy, along with playing Soccer and Kickball”
3. Do you have any kids or pets of your own?
“Dog – Husky – One year old”
4. If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?
“I’m not a fan of candy… so I will stick to Pizza!”
5. Share a favorite volunteer experience or story:
“A few years ago, I spent every Tuesday for six months with a new born. I, still to this day, hold onto the memory of our time together. She went thru so much while here at the hospital. On our final day together, I walked down the hall to see six nurses gathered around her. She noticed me coming towards her and lit up with the biggest smile ever! I was happy to know she was healthy again and going home. At the same time, sad…as she was my Tuesday entertainment with big blue eyes and always smiling!”
You brighten the days of our patients when you are here, Eric! Thank you for your contributions to Children’s!
