Sam Williams has been nominated for the Ken Stephen Medal in 2018.

The Ken Stephen Medal recognises the efforts of an NRL player who has not only achieved on the field, but has also committed time off the field to community projects.

A player is nominated by their NRL club for going above and beyond in their involvement in charity work, youth development, or community support. The nominated player will have consistently demonstrated their commitment to making a difference in their community and be seen as a role model in this area at their NRL club.

Williams who returned to the Club in 2018 put himself forward to be the Ronald McDonald House Charities ambassador in Canberra for the Raiders.

 The Raiders halfback who hails from Cooma has been to the RMHC in Canberra to help cook and prepare meals for the 'meals from the heart' program which helps families in need who are doing it tough.

Sam also helps with the promotion of the RMHC Canberra's events such as the Red Wig Run which is coming up soon.

Details on how to vote for Sam for the Ken Stephen Medal will be made available soon.
