Coaches Across Continents is looking forward to the Beyond Sport Awards in NYC on Wednesday, September 12, 2018.  For the second consecutive year, CAC is shortlisted for the Global Impact of the Year Award, this year with our #WhatsYourLegacy? campaign. Overall there were 355 separate applications from over 100 countries on 6 continents for 10 categories of awards.

    Over 25% of the finalists at this year’s Beyond Sport Awards are CAC partners!

    Coaches Across Continents#WhatsYourLegacy? impacts over 16 million children in 56 countries on 6 continents through our three primary initiatives: 1. Corporation and Foundation Legacy Program; 2. Government and Community Legacy Program; and 3. Curriculum Legacy Program.  All of these initiatives look to create Legacies of Social Change based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

    It is symbolic that in our tenth year, in the month that we celebrate our ten-year anniversary with #CAC10, we are being recognized for our impact on the sport for social impact field.  Just last week, Founder Nick Gates wrote about his thoughts from working in a small town in Kigoma, Tanzania in 2008 to what is being accomplished daily through our year-round partnerships and 28 strategic resources.  Coaches Across Continents was recognized 9 years ago by Beyond Sport with the Best New Project which helped to launch CAC on our road to success. This followed with Corporate of the Year with Chevrolet in 2014 as well as 22 other major global awards.

    Nick is joined at the awards by ASK for Choice Strategist, Nora Dooley and Sustainability Strategist, Adam Burgess.  The Awards may very well feel like a reunion of sorts, as the influence of CAC partnerships will be seen throughout.  Nick, Nora, and Adam will be very busy meeting our partners who were also shortlisted and meeting some other new faces.  CAC directly partners with 7 of the 35 finalists in the main categories.   There are also two separate categories where CAC partners are recognized.  2 of the 5 young leaders nominated for the Courageous Use of Sport Award and 2 of the 3 finalists for Sport for Refugees Award are CAC partners.

    Thursday, after the awards ceremony is the Beyond Sport United Conference.  Nora will be the expert on a panel on how sport specifically can support young people in being socially responsible and active.

    Not to be outdone by all the activity in NYC, 12 time zones away, Chief Executive Brian Suskiewicz is in Kuala Lumpur for the Asian Football  (AFC) Confederation Social Responsibility Conference and Dream Asia awards, occurring on the same two days.  As the Official Social Responsibility Partner of the AFC, Coaches Across Continents is responsible for presenting at activities such as this one to share knowledge and best practices with their 47 member institutions as well as other organizations looking to use sport to create social change in Asia.
