Nominations for Heroes Breakfast are due Friday

Red Cross looking for demonstrated heroism in 2018

The American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern Illinois is accepting nominations to honor the heroes walking among us at its annual Heroes Breakfast in spring 2019.

Every year the event honors local community members who have demonstrated heroism through extraordinary acts of courage or kindness.

To nominate a hero, fill out the online nomination form. Nominations for the early submission deadline are due Nov. 30.

The heroic act must have taken place during the 2018 calendar year or be on-going.

Candidates must also live or work in the Illinois counties of Boone, Bureau, Carroll, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Jo Daviess, LaSalle, Lake, Lee, McHenry, Ogle, Putnam, Stephenson, Whiteside, Will and Winnebago.

Honorees will be recognized at the 17th annual American Red Cross Heroes Breakfast on May at the Hilton Chicago, 720 S. Michigan Ave., in downtown Chicago.

Nominations are being accepted in the following 11 categories:
Blood Services, Community Impact, Disaster Services, Emergency Medical Assistance, Firefighter, Global Citizenship, Good Samaritan Hero, Law Enforcement, Military, Nurse and Youth.

Videos featuring last year’s local Red Cross heroes can be viewed on our You Tube Channel.

The 2019 Heroes Breakfast is made possible thanks to the donations from Signature Sponsors: United Airlines & Walgreens, and Presenting Sponsors: ITW & Kirkland & Ellis.
