Red Bulls forward Kenny Cooper and midfielder/defender Rafa Marquez have been named MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarians of the Month for September.

All season long, Cooper and Marquez have been active in the community with various charities and non-profit organizations . Recently the duo teamed up with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to raise attention and funds for pediatric cancer research.

Both Red Bulls were joined by fellow MLS players Dan Kennedy (Chivas USA), Logan Pause (Chicago Fire) and San Jose's Mehdi Ballouchy, Shea Salinas and Jason Hernandez as Humanitarians of the Month.

Congrats to Cooper, Marquez and the rest of the nominated MLS players on a job well done!
