Last year this was won by Paul Clark who along with 30 amputee families climbed Snowdon in aid of Steelbones charity.
There are also awards for young community volunteer and community club of the year to recognise the great work volunteers do across the county.
Finally there is the Impact Award which is for partnerships, projects or individuals who have improved sport and physical activity participation within their local community .
Simon Fairhall, chief executive of Living Sport, said: "Our awards have been developed to link more closely with our work to improve health and wellbeing by supporting people to get active, increasingly recognising the contribution of sport to wider outcomes of physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing, social and community development, economic development and personal development.
"These awards are a highlight of our year and are a fantastic opportunity to recognise the outstanding contribution made by people and organisations and the positive impact that participating in sport and physical activity can have."
