University of Colorado Hospital Foundation Welcomes Thierry Kennel to Board of Directors
AURORA, Colo. – The University of Colorado Hospital Foundation (UCHF) is pleased to announce Thierry Kennel as the newest member of its board of directors. Kennel’s nomination was approved May 15.

Kennel joins the other board members who all take very active roles with the UCHF’s philanthropy and charity events.
“I’ve had the pleasure to work as a committee member and co-chair for Men for the Cure, and I’ve seen firsthand the positive impact the University of Colorado Hospital Foundation makes for both our community and for patients,” said Kennel. “I’m looking forward to taking a more active role in all the foundation’s events, fundraising and support.”
The UCHF holds several events each year including Men for the Cure, Save the Males and Hearts of All Ages. The foundation has also raised significant funds recently to support the Anschutz Cancer Pavilion and the Emergency Department at University of Colorado Hospital.
“I could not be more pleased to welcome Thierry to the foundation board,” said Pete Coors, board chairman of the University of Colorado Hospital Foundation. “In his brief time in Denver, Thierry has rolled up his sleeves to get involved with this community in a way that is really admirable.
