WWE notes that Cena is being nominated for his work in “philanthropy.” He joins fellow nominees such as the Seattle Seahawks’ wide receiver Doug Baldwin, the Golden State Warriors’ forward Kevin Durant and the Houston Texans’ defensive end J.J. Watt.
One of Cena’s biggest accomplishments is being the most requested Make-A-Wish wish-granter, as well as the only celebrity to have granted 500 wishes. He also starred in the first-ever Make-A-Wish campaign entitled “Wishes Take Muscle.”
The Leader Of The Cenation has also done a lot of work with Susan G. Komen to support breast cancer research and awareness. He is also a big supporter of the U.S. military and was the recipient of the USO’s 2016 Legacy of Achievement Award.
The Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian of the Year award recipient will be announced at the 2018 ESPN Humanitarian Awards on Tuesday, July 24, at 7/6 C on ESPN.
