Red Cross is looking for heroes

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

The American Red Cross Serving King & Kitsap Counties is looking for ordinary individuals who have performed extraordinary deeds.

Do you know someone who used CPR to save a life, pulled a person from a burning building or raised money to help someone in need?

On March 27, 2012, the Red Cross will present awards to local heroes who saved lives, exemplified the Red Cross mission or made significant, positive differences in their communities in the areas of emergency response, preparedness and prevention.

Previous award winners include Roxanne Paz who saved her grandmother’s neighbor from a bedroom fire, Todd DeGreen who helped save stranded hikers and Beth Lott and Robert Heyde who used their CPR skills to save a student.

The nominee must be a resident of, or employed within, King County or the heroic act must have occurred in King County.

The heroic act must be ongoing or have occurred between December 1, 2010, and November 30, 2011.

You can help the Red Cross recognize these extraordinary people by nominating your hero.

Information about the nominations and the form are available online at or by calling (206) 323-2345 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Proceeds from the Heroes Breakfast support the American Red Cross.
