ESPN has announced that John Cena is a finalist for their “Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Of The Year” Award along with all the other nominees:

WWE wrote an article on the announcement and the following is an excerpt:

The incredible honor for the 16-time World Champion is a result of The Cenation Leader’s selfless philanthropy, dedicating much of his time to working on behalf of numerous charitable causes. Honored alongside Cena are the Seattle Seahawks’ Doug Baldwin, the Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant and the Houston Texans’ J.J. Watt.

One of Cena’s most notable accomplishments is being Make-A-Wish’s most requested wish-granter and the only celebrity to grant 500 wishes. He also starred in the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s first-ever brand campaign, “Wishes Take Muscle.”

In addition to his Make-A-Wish efforts, Cena is a committed champion of Susan G. Komen’s support of breast cancer research and awareness. The Cenation Leader is also a staunch supporter of the U.S. military and was the recipient of the USO’s 2016 Legacy of Achievement Award. Cena also starred in a memorable Ad Council campaign, “We Are America,” advocating for a more inclusive society.
