The Breakfast of Champions celebrates those who have displayed courage and compassion in their actions. It celebrates the mission of the American Red Cross. The Breakfast of Champions celebrates the notion that we can all be part of something bigger than ourselves.
Many of you have seen the American Red Cross in action. In the greater Denver region alone, the Red Cross responds to an emergency once every 35 hours - but the Red Cross does much more than respond to disasters. We train everyday people and professionals in lifesaving skills. We assist members of the military and their families. We provide transportation to essential appointments for the elderly and disabled. We educate the community about preparedness. And we reconnect families separated by war or disaster.
