Mr. Kappel was a part of Parma Hockey for over 40 years. He was a staple in and around the rink. You never had to look too far to find him helping in any way he could. Whether it was taking a whole teams skates home to be sharpened or being an assistant coach and passing along his vast hockey knowledge to future generations. Last year we lost Mr. Kappel to Cardiac Amyloidosis, which is when the amyloids embed in the tissue of the heart, leading to heart failure. Please join the Kappel family and their extended Parma Hockey family for the 1st Annual Heart Hustle 5k run and 1 mile walk to benefit Amyloidosis research in memory of Mr. Kappel. We hope you can join us as we run and fly in honor of a great Flyer, Mike Kappel.
