Linden receives Telus Community Champion Award
The recipient of the award was voted for by the people of British Columbia as someone who positively impacts their community and who inspires others to do the same.
The $10,000 award was donated to KidSport BC, one of the many charity organizations supported by Linden and the Vancouver Canucks, in support of young athletes across the province.
Linden, who recently announced his retirement after 19 seasons in the NHL, has long been an active supporter of BC’s children’s charities. Other nominees for the award included Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash and Olympic rower Silken Laumann.
