Argos to Honour OL Jamal Campbell with Toronto Urban Hero Award

Excerpt from the Toronto Argonauts:

Metroland Media Toronto announced this week that Toronto Argonauts offensive lineman Jamal Campbell has been named a Toronto Urban Hero in the Sports Category.

The Urban Hero Awards strive to celebrate community heroes for their inspiring work, leadership and good deeds in the city. The program was launched this summer alongside Canada 150 with the goal of recognizing those who make a difference in the lives of others in their community.

In the sports category, individuals were nominated for their ‘tireless support of local athletes or sports groups’. Nominees were assessed on their lasting impact, their purpose as role models or inspiration for others, and the challenges they’ve overcome to impact their community.

“It’s an honour to be recognized for my contributions to the community that I love and call home. I’m proud to say I’m from Jane and Finch and I hope that my voice and the platform I’ve been given as a member of the Toronto Argonauts can continue to have a positive impact on the younger generations.”
