For over a century, the Red Cross has been a community leader in emergency preparedness and response. Our Heroes Breakfast honors that longstanding tradition of heroism by recognizing local individuals whose extraordinary acts make them a hero. Our heroes personify compassion, selflessness and kindness.

The annual breakfast, a gathering of more than 200 community and business leaders, raises critical funds to help support Red Cross disaster preparedness and response programs in San Mateo County.
