Community Heroes Week

The Mission

Community Heroes Week, launched in 2016, is a week-long community initiative that highlights remarkable stories intended to inspire individuals into action in their own communities.

Throughout Community Heroes Week, the Braves Foundation and FOX Sports South shine a spotlight on individuals and organizations worthy of recognition and support. Each day is designed for honorees to share their inspirational stories with Braves players, coaches, fans and the media, while being surprised with the day of their dreams.

Last season, each Community Hero received a surprise visit from a huge Braves caravan transported on the FOX Sports Fan Express carrying Atlanta Braves players, coaches, mascot, tomahawk team, and broadcasters. Later that evening, they were treated to a VIP experience at the ballpark including batting practice and the chance to meet the rest of the team. Additionally, each honorees' story was shared with Braves fans during the game and on the FOX Sports South broadcast.
