About Us

Heroes Day is committed to honoring the men and women who make our community safe. Our Special Selection Committee was assembled to assist in the award process and carefully review all of the nominations. It is their job to select the 3 first responders who will be awarded at that year’s press conference. The committee is comprised of local community leaders and professionals who all have the same goal in mind; to show support for our first responders and raise money for the UAMC Trauma Center.
