Red-Vested Rockstar: Cory Kopel

Why he rocks: “Our daughter spent 48 hrs in the NICU for precautionary reasons after her birth.  Although our stay in the NICU was short, seeing those families made me think how difficult it must be to be there for a long period.  So that, along with seeing athletes interact with the children over the years in hospitals peaked my interest further to look into volunteering. I coached youth hockey for 5 years up until we had our daughter, so this is a great opportunity to continue interacting with kids.  My wife always says I act like a kid, so it's always been a great fit interacting with kids!”
