Nominations sought for Real Heroes awards
Western Coloradans are invited to tell the Red Cross about someone who may have saved lives or helped others selflessly during 2008.
The American Red Cross is accepting nominations until Feb. 27 for the third annual Real Heroes Breakfast. The breakfast will be March 26.
Military personnel stationed outside of western Colorado are eligible for nomination.
Other award categories are educator, emergency services, firefighter, Good Samaritan, humanitarian service, law enforcement, animal rescue and environmental.
Last year’s Good Samaritan award winner was Christina Sterling-Soffel, who was killed crossing Interstate 70 when she stopped to help another motorist whose vehicle had rolled on the other side of the highway.
