Know someone who performed an act or courage to save or attempt to save a life?
On May 15, the Red Cross Santa Cruz County will host its 2013 Heroes Breakfast and is looking for nominations.
The awards “recognize members of the local community who have shown courage, dedication, and character through acts of heroism and kindness. These people could be your neighbors, co-workers, friends, or family,” according to spokesperson Pooja Trivedi in a press release.
The categories include an Animal Rescue Hero, Education Hero, Good Samaritan, Law Enforcement Hero, Lifetime Achievement Hero, and Workplace Hero.
The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, March 8. The person must work or reside in Santa Cruz County, but the act does not have to have occurred in the County.
The Santa Cruz County Chapter has more details on its website, in addition to a nomination form.
