Covenant and Sartori Foundations accepting nominations to recognize Heroes Among Us

posted 11/1/2018 in News

Everyday citizens become heroes when they go above and beyond to aid a friend, family member, complete stranger or an entire community. It’s time to shine the spotlight on these selfless people for their acts of heroism, bravery and generosity!

Nominate citizens in your community for Heroes Among Us – an event held each year to honor individuals who have gone above and beyond. Heroes can be from anywhere in the northeast Iowa area, with the heroic act occurring any time between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018.
Nomination categories include: Community Service (individual or group), Good Samaritan Adult (21+), Good Samaritan Youth (20 and younger), Medical/Health Care (physicians, nurses, EMTs, paramedics or caregivers), Military (active duty, reserve, guard, individual or group), Environmental (nature and animal efforts), Public Safety (firefighter, law enforcement, security officer), and Work Place (heroic act in a workplace).

Nominations can be submitted online by visiting and clicking on the nomination link. Nomination forms may also be picked up at the Covenant Foundation Office located at Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo, or at the front desk of Sartori Memorial Hospital in Cedar Falls.

Nominations are due by Friday, January 11, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. The Heroes Among Us nomination committee will select winners to be recognized at a breakfast ceremony on Thursday, March 28, 2019. For questions, contact Christy Stolz at the Covenant Foundation by calling 319-272-7676, or emailing
