DES MOINES - Do you know someone who has performed an extraordinary act of courage or dedicated countless hours to a special cause? The American Red Cross, Hy-Vee, University of Iowa and University of Nebraska are looking for those unheralded and unselfish citizens who have gone above and beyond in their everyday lives.
People who are nominated to be a hero must be at least 18 years of age and live, work or go to school in either Iowa or Nebraska; however, their act of heroism or good deed need not have occurred in either state.
Nominations will be accepted October 1 – October 24. Nomination forms and rules can be found online at Redcross.org/HyVee-HeroesGame or may be picked up at local Nebraska and Iowa Hy-Vee stores.
A hero from both Iowa and Nebraska will be honored before a crowd at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City when the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Iowa Hawkeyes play the Heroes Game presented by Hy-Vee on Friday, November 25.
