The City of Elmhurst's Commission on Youth welcomes Brent Sopel, former Chicago Blackhawk Stanley Cup champion, on Wednesday, October 25th, beginning at 7:00 PM in York High School's Campbell Gym. His presentation is most appropriate for students 6th grade and up.

A champion of causes, Brent fearlessly defends underdogs of all walks of life. He is no longer hiding “behind the stick” as he reveals his own hidden challenges. Winners and champions aren’t those without struggles; they are the people that overcome them.

The battles Brent fought on the ice left visible scars, but the invisible wounds he suffered cut deeper. Brent's personal story has directed him toward a path of advocating for others who are struggling with similar obstacles. As a result, Brent’s mission is to be:

  • A champion for Dyslexia and Dysgraphia Awareness
  • A champion for Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery
  • A champion for Youth Training and Mentoring

Email for more information or with any questions. Special thanks go to Rosecrance in their help sponsoring this event. They will lead a Q&A following Mr. Sopel's presentation that evening.Brent Sopel
