Colgate co-captain Ethan Fox was named the 15th recipient of the BNY Mellon Wealth Management Hockey Humanitarian Award at Ford Field on Friday Evening.
The senior from Richmond, BC, began giving back to the community the moment he arrived at Colgate, becoming the team’s leader when it comes to community and charitable events.
He has helped raise over $14,000 in cash and donated items for local and national charities; in 2007-2008 alone, he raised $25,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Last November, his annual (combined) canned goods and toy drive netted its best result yet, raising over 1,000 in non-perishable food items, 150 toys (donated to the Interfaith Holiday Project) and $650 in cash.
"Without our fans, these events wouldn't be possible," said Cox, deflecting praise. "It speaks volumes on the local community that we can gather around a common cause and help the less fortunate during the holidays."
