Laureus is a global organization that honors sport and uses the power of sport to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people. The Laureus organization comprises Laureus Sport for Good, the Laureus World Sports Academy, the Laureus Sport for Good Ambassadors, and the Laureus World Sports Awards. It is a unique organization that uses the power of sport to do good.
Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.
For us at Mercedes-Benz, the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation is a true affair of the heart. Ever since Laureus was founded in 2000, it has inspired and motivated many people. It’s a significant social movement that teaches children to discover the best version of themselves through sport. Today the vision is still growing and is stronger than ever before. Laureus continues to be a sustainable success story. More than 20 markets have joined the Laureus family, and many more will follow. Helping, supporting, participating. Let’s move the ball and change the game — together for the kids.
