We are committed to working to preserve the values fair play, sportsmanship and drug-free competition in the world of sports. But we are building on a foundation that was laid by many courageous individuals and organizations before us, and they deserve to be recognized. That is the purpose of the Foundation for Global Sports Development Humanitarian Award.
The Foundation for Global Sports Development Humanitarian Award is presented to individuals and organizations that have stepped up as leaders and champions for social, economic, political or environmental justice and equality. This award honors those who actively fight against indifference, injustice and intolerance. It recognizes those who promote an international spirit of understanding, cooperation, friendship and development. But special attention is given to organizations and individuals that have enhanced the quality of life in their communities through mentorship and outreach, as well as those whose contributions have not yet been appropriately recognized.
The next Humanitarian Award is to be presented during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Follow us on our blog to find out who the next recipient will be!
