VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, February 14, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Matt uses his engaging entertainment platform, with roles in everything from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles projects to Dino Trux, to advocate for a healthy future for kids and the planet
Voice actor, Run for One Planet Ambassador and TEDX speaker Matt Hill is honoured to be the recipient of the Governor General of Canada Meritorious Service Medal (Civil Division). The award recognizes outstanding accomplishments that set an example for others to follow and bring benefit to our country.
Matt has taken his platform, through wildly popular characters, and his love of running, people and the planet and used it to inspire children through his 11,000 mile run across North America and motivational speaking engagements, where he aims to inspire kids to lead healthy lives, and help our environment.
For over three decades, Matt’s career in voiceover work and feature films has connected him with millions of children around the world through the cartoons they’ve grown up with. Some of the iconic characters he’s lent his voice to include: Raphael in a number of Ninja Turtles productions and Tenderheart on the Care Bears: Adventures in Care-A-Lot. He also voiced Carlos and Ironhide in the Transformer TV series’, Kazuo in Martha Speaks, and Tach in Kate and Mim-Mim – which just won the Shaw Rocket Award. Matt is currently voicing Ton-Ton on the Emmy Award winning Dream Works series, Dino Trux, on Netflix, and recording season two voicing Tyler in Supernoobs on Cartoon Network.
It’s Matt’s passion for our planet’s long-term health that led to him becoming an ambassador of fitness and green living for youth via his Run for One Planet international campaign, which reached over 50,000 children in 220 schools across the continent. Along with his friend Steph Tait, the Run for One Planet mission raised $130,000 for the R41P Legacy 4 Kids Fund, which grants kids “green dreams” in schools around North America. The campaign positively impacted countless youth, and our environment, leading to the Meritorious Service Award.
As Matt continues his busy voiceover work, he also runs and speaks to youth at motivational speaking events, aiming to positively affect not only the environment, but also children's lives around the planet. Making a real change, any way he can, with his continued mission: “Fit Kids on a Fit Planet,”
