Who is your hero?


The deadline for nominating heroes for the eighth annual Heroes Breakfast is this Friday, January 29! Each year, the Greater Chicago Red Cross honors local people for acts of great bravery, dedication and service to the community at our Heroes Breakfast which will take place on April 14, 2010.

“We have many heroes among us. Their courage and good deeds solidify the mission of the Red Cross and help us carry it out,” said Fran Maher, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago. “The Heroes Breakfast is our way of honoring these exceptional individuals who, in addition to their courageous response efforts, inspire others to impart good will on their community.”
