Individuals receiving the award are recognized as having contributed their time, talent and commitment to positive changes, and having inspired others to give back to the community. Bondaryk was recognized for his volunteer work alongside his wife serving weekly dinners in a downtown Phoenix soup kitchen, where they have helped to serve hundreds at each sitting.

Bondaryk transfers his passion for and commitment to helping others to his work for HERI. In his relatively short tenure, Bondaryk has become an invaluable resource to other researchers and staff across Mayo Clinic’s campuses, never failing to offer help or assistance when needed. Congratulations, Matt Bondaryk!
