2017 OhioHealth HUMANITARIAN OF THE YEAR | Jonathan Mensah

Following the 2017 Major League Soccer regular season and postseason, Columbus Crew SC announced its 2017 Team Awards — including the Acura Most Valuable Player, Golden Boot Winner, Defender of the Year, OhioHealth Humanitarian of the Year, Kirk Urso Heart Award and Crew SC Academy Player of the Year.

In his first year in MLS, Jonathan Mensah was active in the Columbus community, donating time at multiple events with organizations like Make-A-Wish, Habitat For Humanity, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and others while also assisting in clinics for challenged youth from the Linden area and the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio.

Additionally, Mensah hosted a donation drive for new and gently used soccer equipment, which was brought back to children in Ghana via his own charitable initiative, the Jonathan Mensah Foundation.
