The league announced today that Seattle Sounders' Fredy Montero was named MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Month in March for his work in the offseason raising money to help the flood victims in his native Colombia. Not honored, but equally deserving, are all of you who donated.
He's the second consecutive Sounder to win the award after James Riley won it in October for his efforts against breast cancer. Seattle's Sanna Nyassi also won the first award last season (in April) for his work in the league's Nothing but Nets anti-malaria initiative. So the Sounders have made up 3 of the last 8 honorees. And while it's not a competition, it shows that being a Seattle Sounder is about more than just soccer. This is a community as much as it is a team.
