19th Annual Acts of Courage Hero Awards and H. Peter Burg Community Leadership Award
Hilton Akron/Fairlawn

Each year the American Red Cross of Summit, Portage and Medina Counties recognizes the heroism of area residents at the Acts of Courage Hero Awards. These residents act courageously in a time of emergency to save the life of someone else. The event is also a platform to present the H. Peter Burg Award to community members who have been selfless in service to the community.  This year’s recipient is William Ginter, who demonstrates a lifelong commitment to humanitarian causes, charitable organizations and the vitality and welfare of the local community.
