Israel Idonije Will Be Mobile C.A.R.E.’s 2013 Community Champion Award Recipient
Community Champion Award Recipient, 2013
Mobile C.A.R.E. Foundation is proud to recognize Israel Idonije for his tireless efforts to inspire and improve underserved communities.
Born in Lagos, Nigeria, and raised in the Province of Manitoba, Israel Idonije completed his tenth season as a versatile defensive end and defensive tackle in the National Football League, having spent nearly his entire NFL career as a member of the Chicago Bears.
Off the field, Idonije is just as formidable, sharing his time, talents, and resources within underserved communities in Chicago, Winnipeg, and Africa through the Israel Idonije Foundation – a non-for-profit organization he founded in 2008. The Israel Idonije Foundation provides programs focused on social and emotional life skills. Idonije also finds time to assist other charities and service providers in furthering their missions, which included a term on Mobile C.A.R.E. Foundation’s board of directors. The Mobile C.A.R.E. Community Champion Award is just one of the many awards and accolades Israel has received for his selfless, hands-on work in the community.
The Community Champion Award will be formally bestowed at Wrigley Field on May 9th, 2013, during Mobile C.A.R.E.’s Strike Out Asthma.
