Ethan Zohn and Soccer
Just because someone goes onto a reality show and wins, doesn't mean you'll then find him on the gossip sites, partying or evading taxes. Ethan Zohn is none of those things. He's also become a friend of mine and someone I truly admire for his dedication. After winning the $1,000,000 on the third season of Survivor, he co-founded Grassroot Soccer, which uses soccer to raise money and awareness to fight HIV/AIDS. In August, 2008, he began a 500-mile soccer dribble from Masssachusetts to Washington, D.C. He absolutely has his heart in the right spot and he never stops -- for the kids and for his cause. You never hear much about him in the magazines/newspapers because while they are looking for the latest reality star who has become a mess or become trashed or whatever, Ethan has been busy doing good stuff -- really good stuff.
Here is his latest charity event. If you can make it, please do so. It's a very worthwhile cause.
