The Hero Awards are a Red Cross tradition honoring individuals who have shown extraordinary courage, compassion and humanity by saving or improving the lives of others. Heroes are recognized in categories such as Lifesaver, Military or Safety Forces, Medical, Community Volunteer and Innovation.

Red Cross says that sponsors not only underwrite the event, but also help the organization ensure that it’s able to respond to thousands of house fires each year, support military and safety forces, and continue to provide safety and preparedness training for the community through CPR, AED and other courses.

“We’re proud to be involved with an organization that does courageous work for our community every day,” said Scott Forster, Magnus co-owner and COO. “The stories of our local heroes are inspiring, and the impact they’ve made can’t be underestimated.”
