The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has given ten organizations its annual sports award for 2022. Each award comes with a $30,000 cash prize.

The award winners vary from a running and mentoring organization for youth facing a high level of adversity to a free inclusive summer camp that provides sports and recreation activities for children with and without disabilities.

Since 2015, this award has recognized professional sports teams, athletes, coaches, and community-based organizations that use sports to catalyze and sustain changes to make communities healthier places to live, learn, work, and play. RWJF’s objective with the program is to lift up organizations that bring a deep understanding of community needs and acknowledge the power of sports to connect us and make us healthier, no matter our race, gender, abilities, or economic background.

Here’s a list of the 2022 winners (plus links to winners from past years), including short descriptions of what the organizations do and the positive impact they make.

Congrats to these organizations who are using sport for good.

Ken Reed, Sports Policy Director, League of Fans
