NSF OM Foundation Award

 

The NSF OM Foundation Award is presented in partnership with the OM Foundation. The inaugural OM Foundation Award was awarded at the 2014 National Sports Forum. The award recognizes and celebrates an INDIVIDUAL and an ORGANIZATION in the sports and entertainment industry who goes above and beyond to better their community. This entails anything from volunteering to help teach underprivileged children how to read on the weekends to starting a foundation that helps raise awareness and money for a certain illness, and beyond.
 
Individuals and organizations are nominated by peers and coworkers and the recipients are hand selected by the OM Foundation Award Selection Committee and the NSF Steering Committee. The 2017 recipients will be announced and recognized at the 2017 National Sports Forum in Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN February 2017.

 HISTORY
The inaugural NSF OM Foundation Award was awarded at the 2014 National Sports Forum in Dallas, Texas to Danny Heinsohn, Business Development Specialist, Access Event Solutions. The award was created and is presented in partnership with Bonner Paddock and the OM Foundation. The award recognizes and celebrates an individual in the sports and entertainment industry who goes above and beyond to better their community.
 
The National Sports Forum's OM Foundation Award recognizes an individual who:
  • Goes above and beyond their 9-5 responsibilities
  • Is actively "doing good" in their community
  • Is positively impacting the lives of those around them
  • Is making a difference
 WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR
We believe that everyone is capable of making a positive difference. The people who work to enrich the lives of others are heroes. A hero can help in many ways, including:
  • Teaching kids how to read
  • Assisting people with disabilities
  • Volunteering at a homeless shelter
  • Mentoring young adults in the community
  • Organizing environmental clean-ups
AND MORE!
 
There are heroes within the NSF Family who should be recognized for the work that they do. We want to recognize the hero in all of us.
 HOW TO NOMINATE
 
Do you know someone (a coworker, friend, colleague) or an organization in the sports and entertainment industry that goes above and beyond to better the community? Whether it be volunteering their time or raising money to support a larger cause... We’d love to learn more!

 ABOUT THE OM FOUNDATION
 
OM Foundation
The OM Foundation (OMF) is a non-profit started in 2009 by Bonner Paddock to build and support early learning centers for children with all types of disabilities in the U.S. and Africa. Bonner, along with his foundation, has raised over $1 Million Dollars for special needs children by summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2008 and completing the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, in 2012 unassisted. Bonner was the first person with cerebral palsy to achieve both. Bonner, through OM Foundation and speaking engagements, promotes the idea that “any one person can make a difference if they dedicate themselves to look beyond their own personal limits to achieve their goals”.
