Northwest Wisconsin Heroes Breakfast

Wisconsin Red Cross Heroes 2017

American Red Cross Heroes are ordinary people whose actions embody the values of the Red Cross, and demonstrate the potential that is in all of us. Whether they’re stepping up during a medical emergency to provide assistance, or helping others through a lifetime of volunteerism, Heroes reflect what is best about our community.

Help us honor heroes in Northwest Wisconsin by submitting a nomination for consideration for the 2018 event. Click the link on the left to nominate your hero by December 31.
