Mr. Barry received the Philanthropist of the Year award at the same 2011 GLA ceremony on July 22. This was the sixth time in twenty years that Barry and Ali have received awards together. Their humanitarian work has earned them joint recognition in Atlanta GA, Liberia, Indonesia, Morocco, Mexico and Malaysia and their journey is chronicled on http://www.globalvillagechampions.org.
Ali's Parkinson's symptoms may have restricted his travel in recent years but his spirit is as strong as ever. He remains an inspiration to millions. When asked what it was like to travel around the world feeding children with Muhammad Ali Yank Barry remarked, "It was like traveling with the Pope but without the security. Everyone wants to touch him and they are all touched by him."
