For years, sports personalities graced the news with stories of excellence. But more recently, the news has been skewed towards stories of personal failure. For this reason, All Sports United created its Humanitarian Award to recognize the efforts of professional athletes as philanthropists. There goal is to bring more positive news to the world at the intersection of sports and philanthropy and to highlight the amazing work of so many.
Allan Houston was nominated by his fans. Now, those same fans can help choose him as the Humanitarian of the Year for 2015. If Houston wins, The Allan Houston Foundation will receive almost $100,000 worth of services from ASU’s sponsors.
