Every day, ordinary people make extraordinary contributions by putting their needs aside to help others in our community. The American Red Cross is honored to salute these unsung heroes. Your hero might be a lifeguard who saved a drowning child, an ordinary citizen who performed CPR when a stranger collapsed at a shopping mall, or someone who saved a neighbor’s beloved pets from a fire.
Our Heroes event pages are open throughout the year (even if the annual event has already occurred) to allow hero nominations or event sponsorship for the following year. Click on a link below to access any one of our five Heroes events.
