Belmont Hill grad scoring goals for good

Kevin McNamara takes his role as senior captain of the men’s hockey team at Colgate University very seriously, on and off the ice. But his vision, and leadership qualities, extend far beyond lacing up the skates for the Raiders.

A 5-foot-11, 180-pound defenseman who skates in all situations for coach Don Vaughan, the Belmont Hill School grad is reaching out to those in need through Goals For Good, a program he founded prior to this season.

The charitable endeavor involves all 12 men’s and women’s Division 1 programs in the ECAC; every program receives pledges from fans based on goals scored or games won through www.goalsforgood.org, a website designed and promoted by McNamara.

Everywhere you turn on the web, there are stories of prep school students or grads involved in charity. Maybe it’s just because it’s the season of giving.

Students from Avon Old Farms raised $16k in just two weeks to buy toys for Hartford-area kids in an annual event called the Hartford Toy Shoppe. 

Just a good example of prep school philanthropy. Pretty amazing to see AOF students raising that much coin in just two weeks. Who would not want to help little kids on Christmas? Here’s the link to the organization that puts on the event: Click here
