Ten Amazing People
A few days ago, our region of the American Red Cross announced its 2016 Heroes Awards recipients. These ten people—whose extraordinary actions exemplify the Red Cross mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies—saved lives, connected communities, and supported children when they needed it most:
Community Hero Shawn Hansen, Nisswa
First Responder Heroes Sgt. Mike Jahnke & Officer Joshua Helgeson & Officer Jeff Liebl, Willmar
Give Life Hero Jerry Nelson, Shoreview
Good Samaritan Heroes Russ and Jenny Braith, Montgomery, and Greg Pint, Lonsdale
Military Hero Mike Clark, Eagan
Youth Good Samaritan Hero Bryden Bronikowski, Duluth
Powerful Stories That Inspire
You are invited to attend the 8th Annual Heroes Breakfast, which will take place on Friday, May 6, at the Radisson Blu Mall of America in Bloomington, MN. Tickets and table sponsorships are available online at redcross.org/mnheroes or by calling (612) 872-3241.
