LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- "The Greatest" will be recognized by the University of Louisville tomorrow, when Muhammad Ali will receive the Grawemeyer Spirit Award. 

The honor goes to people who's actions, ideas, or beliefs help "make the world a better place." 

After a legendary boxing career, Ali became a well known humanitarian.

Organizers tell WDRB Ali and his wife, Lonnie, will attend the ceremony. It's set for 11 a.m. at the Louisville Palace. The event is free and open to the public -- but there is already a waiting list for tickets.
