Every year the Gold Country Region of the American Red Cross (ARC) recognizes community members who have performed extraordinary acts of courage and kindness. These heroes are honored for such selfless deeds as saving lives, performing First Aid/CPR, raising money for disaster victims, and much more. They are people who embody the Red Cross mission. As part of our Centennial celebration, we will celebrate these individuals in "100 Years of Heroes" events throughout 2017.

The Red Cross currently seeks nominations for the following Heroes in Yolo, Yuba/Sutter, and San Joaquin Counties:

  • Hero of the Year: An individual whose actions demonstrate a passionate commitment to saving lives and/or promoting the health and well-being of others.

  • Though the heroic act may have occurred anywhere, Hero nominees must reside in the Gold Country Region county in which they are being honored.
  • Heroic act must have been performed after January 1, 2016
