Greater Cleveland: Hero Awards

The Greater Cleveland Chapter proudly presents its Hero Awards, a bi-annual fundraising event that honors everyday people who are impacting the world. The values we recognize in our Heroes mirror those that motivate and inspire the work of the American Red Cross.

Event sponsors help the Red Cross of Northeast Ohio honor our Heroes and ensure that we are able to respond to thousands of house fires each year, support our military and safety forces, and continue to provide safety and preparedness training for our community through CPR, AED and other courses.

After Hero nominations are vetted and Heroes are selected by a judging committee, the public has the opportunity to read their stories and vote for their favorite Heroes.

This event is sponsored by many of the region's philanthropic and corporate leaders, raising critical funds to support the important mission of the Red Cross. The nearly 500 guests who attend this well-loved community event are inspired by the Heroes' stories and encouraged to become more engaged in their communities and favorite causes.
