Heroes of the Heartland 2016

Iowa Heroes

As a community leader in emergency preparedness, response and recovery, the American Red Cross honors those making an impact through their courageous and compassionate actions, demonstrating a true commitment to creating safer, stronger communities.

Each year, the Red Cross in Iowa recognizes individuals whose extraordinary acts of courage make them someone’s hero - Heroes of the Heartland honors those whose heroic acts mirror the daily accomplishments of the American Red Cross. Heroic acts born in the simple yet powerful process of one person putting his or her needs aside to help another. In recent years, heroes have been recognized for saving their neighbors during house fires, performing CPR to strangers in stores or for their outstanding work in their communities.

This unique program is also the primary fundraising event to support the mission of the Red Cross in Central Iowa, and it will also celebrate the 100 years of Red Cross service in Iowa!

Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information on how you can align your business with Heroes of Heartland, please contact bryce.sitter@redcross.org or (515) 246-6307.
