Red Cross Seek Nominees for Real Heroes Award

Mainers regularly go the extra mile to help others: a couple revives a man who suffers a heart attack; a cancer patient promotes blood drives to help others; a teacher saves a chocking student.

The Red Cross is accepting nominations for its annual Real Heroes Award.  If you know of a Good Samaritan who performed an extraordinary act of heroism or courage, nominate them for an American Red Cross Real Heroes Award.

The Real Heroes Award recognizes Mainers who have demonstrated acts of heroism, provided outstanding community service, and shown courage, kindness, and unselfish character in service to others:

Past Awards have been presented to:

Military personnel

Law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders

Everyday citizens

Awards will be presented at events in Bangor, Caribou, Lewiston, and Portland beginning in March.

The nomination deadline is January 8, 2016.
