Sportsmen do a lot of amazing things on the Playing Field but when they do something like this is what makes them special. Amazing!!

Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young made a donation Wednesday when it was announced he paid off $1 million of medical debt belonging to the most vulnerable residents in Atlanta.

Partnering with a nonprofit called RIP Medical Debt, Young’s money went directly toward paying off the debt of people who are two-times or below the federal poverty line, or those who owed amounts in excess of 5 percent of their gross annual income.

“The city of Atlanta has welcomed me with open arms,” said Young. “Giving back to this community is extremely important to me. I hope these families can find a bit of relief knowing that their bills have been taken care of as we enter the New Year.”
