  • An individual athlete or professional coach’s foundation based in the United States or Canada.
  • An organization in the United States or Canada that is an influential leader and model for improving community health through sports.

Applicants that are not charitable organizations or public entities must apply with an organization that is such an entity and will receive the prize funds. Entities that are a chapter within a larger organization, the umbrella organization is eligible to apply, but individual chapters are not.
