Colin Couch, 2008 Doerbecher Freestyle designer

With his signature bow tie and larger-than-life personality, Colin Couch is an unforgettable member of the 2008 Doernbecher Freestyle team.

Colin was treated for a congenital heart defect at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and was more than happy to help give back to the hospital that took care of him.

“Doernbecher is a nice place to be – it makes me feel good to know that my shoe is helping other kids.”

Colin Couch, 23

Colin, now 23, is studying finance at Brigham Young University — Hawaii. He’s enjoying being back home in Oregon City for the summer and interning at a brick-oven pizzeria.

Colin also is preparing to get on the transplant list and has high hopes for a brand new heart in the near future.
