The World Affairs Council presents the 2017 H. Neil Mallon Award to global superstar Dirk Nowitzki in recognition of his continuing, exemplary work as a humanitarian and international touchstone for Dallas-Fort Worth.
On the basketball court, he is Dirk Nowitzki, number 41, of the Dallas Mavericks. At Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, the kids know him as “Uncle Dirk,” the man who brings back their smiles at a tough time in their lives.
On other continents and around town, his namesake foundation lifts spirits in neighborhoods and classrooms by providing tangible evidence of hope for the future.
