CoopStrong is a non-profit organization formed to honor the memory of Nelson Cooper, a beloved husband, father, professor, and friend who passed away from ALS in May 2017.

CoopStrong aids in the fight against ALS by assisting local families living with the disease, supporting funds to the ALS Association North Carolina Chapter, the Duke ALS Clinic, and the Jim "Catfish" Hunter ALS Clinic at Vidant Medical Center, and raising awareness for this horrible disease.

CoopStrong also keeps the memory and legacy of Dr. Nelson Cooper alive through scholarships awarded to Recreation Sciences students at East Carolina University
