We are honoring community heroes for their extraordinary acts of courage and kindness.
In 2018 the American Red Cross Minnesota will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Heroes Breakfast. Join us in celebrating community Heroes.
The Heroes Breakfast was established in an effort to raise public awareness of local heroes and volunteers who carry out the mission of the Red Cross every day in local communities. Since 2008, the American Red Cross of Minnesota has celebrated extraordinary individuals who have made a personal commitment to creating safer and strong communities, and providing help when disaster strikes.
This year we will be Honoring Community Heroes in Six Categories:
