New York Red Bulls' Stammler named W.O.R.K.S Humanitarian of the Year

New York Red Bulls player Seth Stammler has been named the 2010 MLS W.O.R.K.S Humanitarian of the Year.

The 29-year old established the Sporting Chance Foundation (SCF) to assist the people of Haiti 'by teaming up with prominent athletes, various communities, and businesses around the world, to raising money to concentrate on two of the most important aspects of bettering life in Haiti, education and clean/potable water.'

Stammler was delighted to accept the award on behalf of all the people who have volunteered to assist the foundation.

"I wanted to get away and have an impact on children's lives," said Stammler. "I went down not expecting to be as inspired and changed as I was when I got back.

"I'm very proud of the work we have done with the Sporting Chance Foundation. It's an award to be shared by everyone involved, from the Board members to all the donors who have given since its existence. Obviously without them, none of this would have been possible the education and clean water program."
