Beyond Sport Elevates World's Best Leveraging Sport to Accelerate Impact in Reaching the 2030 UN Global Goals

Sixteen Organizations, Representing 36 Countries Illustrate the Power and Dynamism of Sport Despite Incredible Challenges

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- From using yoga as a path to empower and employ youth across Africa to rugby as a tool for social mobility and inclusion in Brazil, sport is being used with intention to support communities around the world while simultaneously providing hope in a year like no other.  Beyond Sport, a leader in sport for social change, encourages others to share these powerful stories as part of its 12th annual Beyond Sport Global Awards. 

"Our communities have always sought to face up to challenges and seek solutions, but no one could ever have imagined the additional complexities that this year would bring. Against this context, it is even more impressive that these programs continue to deliver impact across the world, changing lives and holding communities together," said Nick Keller, Beyond Sport President and Founder. "The Beyond Sport Foundation is humbled and grateful for the opportunity to elevate these leaders that seek to use sport to improve people's lives for the better."

Utilizing more than 25 sports as platforms for learning and change, the life-altering work reflects the human spirit and determination to create a better world for all. Those spearheading this change have made a tremendous impact on social issues including equality, social justice, well-being and economic growth.
