Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young has canceled more than $1 million in medical debt for residents in the city. The second-year NBA pro teamed up with RIP Medical Debt, a nonprofit that takes care of past-due medical debts.

Young made a donation of $10,000 through his organization, the Trae Young Foundation, to target relief in the greater Atlanta area, RIP Medical announced Wednesday.

"The city of Atlanta has welcomed me with open arms," Young said in a statement. "Giving back to this community is extremely important to me. I hope these families can find a bit of relief knowing that their bills have been taken care of as we enter the New Year."

He later tweeted, "Blessed to have such a Great Team around me to help me make this happen!!"
