The Colts have been nominated for the inaugural United Nations NGO Positive Peace Awards in the Professional Sports Team category.

The award recognizes individuals, businesses, athletes, sports teams, entertainers and schools around the world for their positive contributions around the world.

"We are honored and humbled to be nominated and hope that, by example, we may be an inspiration to others", said Jim Irsay, the team's owner.

The Colts were nominated by the United Way of Central Indiana. The team's fundraising efforts have resulted in 3,000 donors increasing or donating for the first time. The Colts also run fitness programs and collect food and clothing for underprivileged children.

"Celebrate Positive congratulates the Indianapolis Colts and the other nominees for exemplifying what giving back to the community means" said Scott Pederson, President and CEO, Celebrate Positive. "The Indianapolis Colts are a wonderful example of how a professional sports team can make a positive impact in the community."

The winner of the award will be announced in mid-December.
