Thanks for a great 2013 Event - Stay tuned for 2014 Details
Heroes Day is a celebration to honor and say thanks to all Southern Arizona first responders. This year Heroes Day was held October 17th where we honored 3 individuals who went above and beyond the call of duty. This year, the Heroes Day council worked with over 30 departments of first responders and received many deserving nominations.
Heroes Day includes special events and recognition including a free breakfast and lunch to any first responder who comes to one of the five Jack Furrier Tire & Auto Care Heroes Day locations:
Speedway between Craycroft and Wilmot- 5852 E. Speedway Blvd.
22ndStreet East of Pantano-8080 E. 22St
Ina West of Old Father, 4291 W. Ina Rd
First Ave. South of Ft. Lowell, 3002 N. First Ave.
Oracle Rd. between Magee & Ina-7846 N. Oracle Rd.
Like other years, we encourage the community to stop in and thank the first responders and participate in signing our thank you banners. Any donations collected will benefit The University of Arizona Medical Center- Trauma Program.
Heroes Day is a volunteer effort supported by local businesses providing their talents and time to make the day special for our first responders. We ask that you remember all of our sponsors and support their efforts as they have supported Heroes Day. A special thanks goes to Jack Furrier Tire & Auto care who is presenting Heroes Day and partnering with University of Arizona Medical Center (UAMC) Foundation to provide an event that also raises awareness and funds for University of Arizona Medical Center (UAMC) Trauma Center, the only level 1 Trauma Center in Southern Arizona.
