Canadian rock band and philanthropists Rush are finally getting honored for their decades of charity support and donations.
The group is up for this year’s Allan Waters Humanitarian Award, an accolade previously bestowed to Canadian artists like Neil Young, Sarah McLachlan and Simple Plan, who’ve all made a difference in their home country with their art and community service.
“We are sincerely grateful to be recognized as this year’s recipients of the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award,” the band said collectively in a statement, as Rolling Stone reports. “We are proud, honored and humbled to be in the company of all Canadians who find it within their hearts to help those in need.”
