Boroondara local Doug Fox took home the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2021 Boroondara Sports awards. The win recognised his more than 65 years of involvement with the Camberwell Lacrosse Club – first as a player, and then as a lead volunteer.
“I started as a player at the Camberwell Lacrosse Club when I was just 10 years old and I’ve spent more than 50 years as a lead volunteer, helping to run a community program for youth.
“To be personally recognised with a Lifetime Achievement Award was a proud moment, but beyond that, it was also great to see the sport of lacrosse recognised,” says Doug (pictured at the awards with Norm Smith medallist Christian Petracca).
