George Washington men's tennis junior Ulrik Thomsen was named Community Service Athlete of the Month for January on Friday.

The Community Service Athlete of the Month award, a distinction which started this academic year, goes to the student-athlete who leads by example and who most impacts the GW and Washington community through service.

"Ulrick's positive attitude and motivational leadership are palpable as he helps members of our D.C. Community in need," Life Skills Coordinator Ted Costigan said.

This past fall Ulrik served as a volunteer at the AIDS Walk where he helped raise funds and awareness for Whitman-Walker Health, a non-profit community-based health organization that provides comprehensive and accessible health care for those infected with or affected by HIV and AIDS.

In addition to his work with the AIDS Walk, Ulrik is also active in community service projects with his fraternity Phi Kappa Psi. In line with the GW Department of Athletics and Recreation's mission to show military appreciation, Ulrik helped organize a fundraising event for Tragedy Assistant Program for Survivors (TAPS), which provides services to those who have lost a loved one on active duty with the United States Armed Forces.
