As a community leader in emergency preparedness and response, the American Red Cross annually presents the Acts of Courage Awards to local individuals who have acted courageously in a time of emergency. Often at great risk to their own personal safety and well-being, these ordinary individuals have acted in a heroic manner by reaching out to help others in times of greatest need. Due to their courage, tragedies were averted and lives were saved.
The concept for the Red Cross Heroes Award grew out of a desire to develop a special event that is closely related to the humanitarian mission of the Red Cross. What better way to celebrate this spirit of humanitarianism than by honoring those individuals who have shown courage, coolness and kindness during a time of emergency.
Our annual event will be held on March 2,2017.
Tickets to this event are sold out. Please check back for information on next year's event.
