Since 1999, the American Red Cross of Central New York has celebrated the Red Cross mission of alleviating human suffering by hosting the Real Heroes Breakfast to honor Central New Yorkers who have performed heroic acts to help others in need. Held annually on the first Wednesday of December at the Oncenter in Syracuse, the Real Heroes Breakfast regularly attracts 1,000 people to the Oncenter in downtown Syracuse.

The Red Cross touches lives in our state every day through programs and services such as Disaster Relief; Service to the Armed Forces; and Preparedness and Health & Safety Training. As an organization committed to helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies in our communities, the Red Cross is honored to salute individuals who make a difference.

Proceeds from the Real Heroes Breakfast benefit the American Red Cross of Central New York, which provides relief to victims of disasters and helps people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies in Onondaga, Cayuga, Cortland, Madison and Oswego counties.
