At the American Red Cross, the word hero is boundless and has no absolute definition.
Your 2016 Everyday Hero may be an educator, a nurse, a community leader or volunteer, a firefighter, young or old; they may act as an advocate for their employees, their patients, serve our country, or could be a wonderful neighbor from next door.
We are looking to you to share your idea of a hero. Tell us their story of selfless behavior, how they inspire others, their contribution to the community or how they have gone above and beyond to make our community a better place.
Heroic acts to be considered should have occurred during the 2015 calendar year. Nominations should be received by January 15, 2016.
