Live a Dream, Make a Change
Laureus is a global movement that celebrates the power of sport to bring people together as a force for good. The first Patron of Laureus was Nelson Mandela. At the inaugural Laureus World Sports Awards in 2000, President Mandela said: “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. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers.”
This has become the philosophy of Laureus, the driving belief behind all we do.
Laureus combines Laureus Sport for Good, the Laureus World Sports Academy and Ambassadors Programme and the Laureus World Sports Awards to form a unique organisation that uses the inspirational power of sport as a force for good.
This auction will support Laureus Sport for Good's work in Mexico. Laureus works through five local delivery partners in Mexico City, each of which uses sport to change the lives of young people in their local community - from using football to keep young people in education, to using martial arts to reduce youth crime. Through bringing support from the likes of Nike and Mercedes-Benz, Laureus partners are changing the game for young people in Mexico City.
