WASHINGTON — LeBron James of the Miami Heat has received the “Champion of Youth” award from the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

The award was presented to James by actor Denzel Washington, the club’s national spokesman. The award recognizes the relationship that the two-time NBA MVP has had with clubs across the country for the past several years.

James formally received the award Tuesday night. Wednesday, he remained in Washington for more ceremonies and the launch of a new public service advertisement for the clubs called “Great Futures Start Here.”

The spot is directed by Ron Howard and includes about 20 BGCA alumni like James, Shaun White, Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson and Sugar Ray Leonard.
