Do You Know a Champion? The Red Cross is Looking for Some!

Posted:

Throughout the South Plains community, ordinary people perform extraordinary acts of courage and selflessness that save lives. The American Red Cross South Plains Regional Chapter needs your help to identify and honor these local champions from our community. Nominations are being sought for the American Red Cross Champions: Honoring Lifesavers of the South Plains event.

Do you know a champion? Your Real Champion nominee may be a friend or family member, a neighbor, co-worker, a firefighter, member of trained life-saver, or simply a good Samaritan. Champions must either live or work in the South Plains Regional Chapter service area.

Help the Red Cross recognize these extraordinary people by nominating your hero champion today. Nominations are being accepted in the following hero categories:

  • Law Enforcement
  • Youth Humanitarian
  • Adult Humanitarian

  • Medical
  • Fire Safety
  • Military
  • Animal Rescue

Then, join us on Thursday, September 11, 2008 as the American Red Cross South Plains Regional Chapter honors our community's champions. There will be a breakfast ceremony held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Banquet Hall. A community celebration, the American Red Cross Champions event honors local champions for using their First Aid, CPR, AED training and other actions to save lives.

You can also support the work of the American Red Cross South Plains Regional Chapter  as a Champions Corporate Event Partner and inviting guests to join you, or by making your own reservation to attend the celebration.
