Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock. There Is Still Time to Nominate a Hero!

It’s February 4th already. That means…that there are still 44 days until the first day of spring!

But that also means that there are only 2 days left to nominate your hometown hero for the 2009 Heroes Breakfast!

(Sorry, Batman, we know that your movie brought a lot Chicago pride for being filmed here, but you don't count.)

The event’s sponsor CBS 2 is helping spread the word around the Chicagoland area to encourage you to recognize a REAL person, an ordinary individual who has made an extraordinary difference in your community.

Heroism is measured by great acts of bravery, commitment, and goodwill. It may only take seconds to perform CPR and save a stranger’s life in an emergency. It may take days or weeks just to help neighbors rebuild a home and life after having lost everything to a disaster.

Either way, it only takes a few minutes to share your hero’s inspiring story with us! Check out the award categories to see where your hero fits in, and nominate that special person by visiting www.chicagoredcross.org/heroes.

Spread the word around your neighborhood about the 2009 Heroes Breakfast. We look forward to helping you say “Thank you!” to your hero…in a big way!
