The NSF Project Possible Award (Previously the OM Foundation Award) is presented in partnership with Bonner Paddock and Project Possible. The inaugural NSF OM Foundation Award was awarded at the 2014 National Sports Forum. The award recognizes and celebrates an individual in the sports and entertainment industry who goes above and beyond to better their community. This entails anything from volunteering to help teach underprivileged children how to read on the weekends to starting a foundation that helps raise awareness and money for a certain illness, and beyond. In 2022, the One Man Foundation evolved into Project Possible.
Individuals and organizations are nominated by peers and coworkers and the recipients are hand selected by the Project Possible Award Selection Committee and the NSF Steering Committee. The recipient of the Project Possible Award is presented with the award at the National Sports Forum in front of the entire NSF audience.
Congratulations to Mark Timson, recipient of the 2023 Project Possible Award. Marc Timson, Executive Vice President of MoZeus was selected as this year’s winner for his work as President of the Adaptive Golf Association. Marc has been a part of the Forum family since 2005. Along with his work at MoZeus, Marc has dedicated his time to the Adaptive Golf Association for nearly 30 years, playing a selfless and instrumental role. The AGA is a 501C3 non for profit organization, their mission is to provide a means for individuals with disabilities the opportunity to learn and play golf. AGA was originally founded by United States Marine, Sonny Ackerman, in 2002. Sonny wanted to help everyone, regardless of ability but Veterans always held a special place in his heart and that philosophy still holds true within the AGA today. Sonny passed in 2006 and since that time, Marc and volunteers continue to carry forward Sonny’s vision.
We are honored to award Marc Timson with the 2023 Project Possible Award.
We believe that everyone is capable of making a positive difference. The people who work to enrich the lives of others are heroes. A hero can help in many ways, including:
There are heroes within the NSF Family who should be recognized for the work that they do. We want to recognize the hero in all of us.
Project Possible (formerly One Man Foundation) is a non-profit started in 2009 by Bonner Paddock to build and support early learning centers for children with all types of disabilities in the U.S. and Africa. Bonner, along with his foundation, has raised over $1 Million Dollars for special needs children by summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2008 and completing the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, in 2012 unassisted. Bonner was the first person with cerebral palsy to achieve both. What started as an idea by 1 man has now become a global organization with 5 centers in 5 countries- Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Nicaragua, and the United States.
Bonner, through Project Possible and speaking engagements, promotes the idea that “any one person can make a difference if they dedicate themselves to look beyond their own personal limits to achieve their goals”.
