So what is the purpose of this award? Does "honored for athletic excellence and community service…" at the bottom of the page linked say it all?

All the information can be found in Evan's news and update thread:

Winners of the Award were selected for outstanding performances in competitions, charitable work and community involvement.

The award is given by the AHRC-New York City Foundation, which delivers grants to programs in New York City that benefit people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I believe the annual Thurman Munson dinner, where the honorees receive the awards, is a large fundraiser for the organization. Other well-known athletes are also being honored.
