Duke Pieper

Founder, The Pieper Hope and Courage Foundation

Duke joined the PCA-Minnesota Associate Board because he truly believes in the message and the work they are doing in the community.

He is a current student at the University of Minnesota, he recently published a book titled I'm Alive: Courage, Hope, and a Miracle, and spends much of his time as a motivational speaker. 

Duke is also the founder of The Pieper Hope and Courage Foundation, whose mission is to inspire and empower people to move forward with hope and courage in the face of adversity associated with life’s challenges. Duke was 15 years old when he was told that he had a 5% chance to live. It seemed that all the odds were stacked against him– except one: determination.
