Matt Light named All Sports United’s 2014 Humanitarian

All Sports United (@allsportsu) announced today that retired NFL lineman Matt Light has been honored as the winner of the 2014 Humanitarian Award today, a prize given annually to an outstanding professional athlete for excellence in philanthropy. Light’s nonprofit organization, The Light Foundation, will receive a $100,000 prize package to further its mission and public exposure.

“I’ve been doing this for over a decade, working alongside people who tirelessly give their time,” Light said. “For all the people that do that, this night is all about them. It’s such an honor and such a humbling moment. It’s just incredible.”

The Light Foundation will receive assets and services donated by Media Cause, Auction Cause, Social Ambassador, Pro Player Insiders, G2G Collection, and BiTHouse.

Light was selected out of a group of 40 nominations for the award. Twelve finalists, as determined by the results of a month-long online vote, converged in Chicago for a ceremony where a panel decided the winner. Other notable finalists included Marshawn Lynch (Seattle Seahawks), Bill Belichick (New England Patriots), Allison Baver (Olympic speed skater) and Isiah Thomas (National Basketball Association).
