The Heroes Among Us event shines the spotlight on eastern Iowans who have truly made a difference in the lives of family members, friends and neighbors living among us. These individuals did something that others could not in that specific year. They went above and beyond to help others, their community and the environment around them.  In its 11th year, this event hosted nearly 319 people in attendance and has raised more than $288,000. On behalf of Sartori Health Care Foundation and Covenant Foundation, Inc., we want to thank these Heroes for all that they have done.
