BBC Sport takes a look at the 2013 Unsung Heroes from across the country.
Each of the 15 BBC Nations and Regions selected a hero who has done great work within their local areas to encourage other people to get involved and inspired by sport.
Do you know someone who inspires people to get involved in playing sport in their communities? Go to the Get Inspired Unsung Hero nominations page to find out how to give them the recognition they deserve.
