Our Heroes nominations have been pouring in, and it's been incredible reading about the acts of kindness and bravery being done in our community. In the midst of so much challenge and struggle, it is amazing to see the selflessness and inspiration that lives so strongly in Western New York.

Who is your hero? We want to know! We are collecting nominations for Heroes for one final week, and winners will be honored throughout our annual Heroes celebration this fall. One Hero will also win our Ultimate Prize Pack, which includes prizes from Wegmans, Lowes, local restaurants, wellness centers and more. Click here to submit your nomination!
