    Team USA Community Champions in partnership with Comcast (formerly named the Team USA Service & Hope Award) recognizes Olympic and Paralympic athletes on a yearly basis for their commitment to serving and bettering their communities through nonprofit work. The award honors athletes who embody the Olympic values of Excellence, Respect and Friendship and the Paralympic values of Determination, Inspiration, Equality and Courage, as well as charitable organizations whose missions focus on youth sport, physical activity, or health and well-being.

    Through this award program, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Foundation and Comcast are proud to celebrate athletes not only as members of Team USA, but as citizens who have the unique ability to inspire positive change through meaningful service and engagement.

    The award is funded in part by Comcast and will be disbursed annually by the USOPF through 2028.
