Nominations begin for American Red Cross Champions Breakfast

From South Plains Chapter of American Red Cross: 

LUBBOCK, Texas – The South Plains Chapter of American Red Cross will host the 6th annual Champions Breakfast on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, at Aerocare.  This event will honor lifesavers of the South Plains and is presented by KCBD NewsChannel 11.

Champions Awards will be presented in categories such as:

  • Adult
  • Emergency Response
  • Humanitarian
  • Law Enforcement
  • Medical
  • Young Adult
  • Military 

Champions Awards - Criteria

To be eligible for an award, a nominee must have saved (or assisted in saving) a life by intervening in a life-threatening situation and/or given the victim the aid they needed (or would have needed) to survive.

The nominee can be a professionally trained life saver or simply a "good Samaritan," but must live or work in one of the 15 counties served by the American Red Cross South Plains Chapter (Lubbock, Bailey, Cochran, Crosby, Dickens, Floyd, Garza, Hale, Hockley, King, Lamb, Lynn, Motley, Terry or Yoakum counties, an estimated population of 400,000.)

The heroic act can have occurred outside those counties as long as the hero is a resident.

Champions is held in September to recognize National Disaster Preparedness Month, and to honor the heroism of so many following the attacks of September 11, 2001.

The event acknowledges the selfless lifesaving contributions of individuals of the South Plains area, increases awareness of Red Cross services and raises funds to support chapter services in disaster response and preparedness.

"Bottom line, it's about helping and bringing hope to others.  Throughout the South Plains community, ordinary people perform extraordinary acts of courage that save lives," said South Plains Regional Chapter Executive Director Shannon Smith. "We want to honor a few of the everyday heroes and local champions in our area."

The American Red Cross South Plains Regional Chapter offers assistance with disaster recovery, health and safety courses, Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) and many other valuable services. The chapter offers volunteer opportunities in areas such as disasters, health and safety instruction, clerical office assistance and special events.

For more information on tickets, table sponsorships or media credentials, contact the chapter office at (806) 765-8534.  Complete a nomination form, view sponsorship materials and purchase tickets and tables online at www.Lubbock.RedCross.org.
