Former Football Cat, Corey Peters enjoys helping others

Here's a little feel good story for you involving a former Kentucky Wildcat from the gridiron...

Corey Peters is a true example of what helping others is all about

Since arriving in Atlanta, he’s worked with the Atlanta Fire Department, with breast cancer survivors during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  However, his “soft spot” is working with kids.

Peters said that his willingness to help others was strongly encouraged at UK.  “Coach Rich Brooks really did a good job in providing us opportunities to get out visiting children’s hospitals, going to schools, reading to kids, talking to high schoolers.  For me, as an education major, that was something that I was really interested in, said Peters.”

“One of my big partnerships is with the Rally Foundation which is a childhood cancer research group.  Their goal is to raise money to help childhood cancer.   Childhood cancer is a completely different thing than adult cancer,” Peters said. “ And I’m still in the schools, I visit a lot of schools.”
