Nominations can be made online now through Sept. 30

Do you know someone who has performed an extraordinary act of courage or dedicated countless hours to a special cause? The American Red Cross and Hy-Vee are looking for those unheralded and selfless citizens who have gone above and beyond in their everyday
lives.
A hero from both Iowa and Nebraska will be honored during halftime at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City when the Iowa Hawkeyes and Nebraska Cornhuskers play in the Hy-Vee Heroes Game on Friday, Nov. 23. Nominations for heroes are being accepted now through Sept. 30 on the Red Cross Serving Greater Iowa’s website. To nominate a hero, click here:

“The Hy-Vee Heroes Game is a great opportunity for all of us to recognize citizens who take action to help others, offering their assistance in difficult and often dangerous situations,” said Brad Waller, assistant vice president of community relations for Hy-Vee.
“The American Red Cross thanks Hy-Vee for joining in this effort to honor everyday citizens who engage in heroic acts,” said Leslie Schaffer, the Iowa regional executive for the American Red Cross.
“We are proud to be a part of recognizing these amazing individuals who offer help to others in crisis.”
People who are nominated to be a hero must be at least 18 years of age and live, work or go to school in Iowa; however, their act of heroism or good deed need not have occurred in the state. Recipients will receive tickets to the game and on-field recognition. They also will have their name and hometown inscribed on the Hy-Vee Heroes Game trophy.
