The first Sports Humanitarian of the Year Awards, presented by ESPN and PlayStation®, will celebrate and honor athletes, nonprofits and members of the sports industry for serving communities through sports to make a positive impact on society. The event will be the first of its kind, bringing together the sports industry and sporting community to pay tribute to the good of sports. Multiple sports-related leagues and/or governing bodies have nominated athletes, teams and community members that are using the power of sports to transform lives.
“During the event, which will be hosted by Laila Ali, winners will be announced from among the finalists for two major award categories – Sports Humanitarian of the Year and Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year. Additionally, the event will celebrate four inaugural “Stuart Scott ENSPIRE Award” (ESPN + inspire) winners, recognized for taking risks and using innovation to help the disadvantaged. As part of the PlayStation Heroes initiative, PlayStation is the presenting sponsor of the Sports Humanitarian of the Year Awards, which will benefit the Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund at The V Foundation – a fund that encourages cutting-edge research for minority populations suffering from cancer. ” (espn.go.com)
