Attended by sports celebrities, business leaders and development visionaries, the Global Awards celebrate, support, raise awareness and provide funding through the Beyond Sport Foundation. This year, the Foundation will award more than $350,000 to organisations that are using sport to help make the UN Sustainable Development Goals a reality. All shortlisted organisations will also receive a custom business support package from experts in the business, sport and development sectors to help strengthen their organisations through mentoring and fundraising tools.
