Each year, the American Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming honors local community members for their extraordinary acts of courage, kindness, dedication and service to the community.

These heroes are then recognized at our annual American Red Cross Rocky Mountains Heroes Soirée to be held on March 16, 2024.

Last year, the Red Cross honored Richard Fierro, from Colorado Springs, with the Life Saving Military Hero Award.

Recognizing local heroes is a rewarding and moving experience and having the chance to celebrate those heroes publicly throughout our community and honor their efforts, are the highlight of the evening. We need your help to find these extraordinary individuals. If you have someone you would like to nominate visit
