People in the Bay Area make a difference in the lives of others in their communities every day. The American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter and civic leaders from six counties in the Bay Area are joining together to celebrate everyday heroism, recognizing those individuals whose extraordinary acts of kindness and courage make them heroes.

Be sure to join us for one of our six events, held in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo and Solano Counties. Hear the inspiring stories of our heroes and network with business and community leaders in the Bay Area.

NOMINATE YOUR HERO

Do you know a hero who has made a difference in your community? Please help us in giving our local heroes the recognition they deserve. The American Red Cross Bay Area is looking for individuals and organizations who reside in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, San Francisco or Solano Counties whose extraordinary acts of kindness and courage make them a hero.

The American Red Cross Bay Area invites you to nominate a hero for one of the following categories:

Lifesaving Hero: An adult or youth who has performed an
  extraordinary lifesaving act, using skills such as CPR
  or first aid.
Act of Courage Hero: An adult or youth who has performed an
  extraordinary act of courage.
Act of Kindness & Philanthropy Hero: An adult or youth who has
  shown an extreme act of kindness or selflessness.
Community Service Hero, Individual: An adult or youth who has
  performed great community service.
Community Service Hero, Organization: A business or organization
  that has performed great community service.
Animal Rescue Hero: An animal that has protected a human in a
  time of need or a person who has rescued an animal from a traumatic
  situation.

All nominees must work or reside in one of the Bay Area’s six counties. The heroic acts may have occurred elsewhere. The heroic event must have occurred in the 12 months before the nomination deadline. Heroes award recipients will be selected by a committee of community leaders and notified by phone. Heroes are selected based on the degree to which their acts of heroism uphold the values of the American Red Cross and leave a lasting and positive impact on the residents of the Bay Area.
