Heroes can be big or small, obvious or quiet, providing inspiration and hope to the people they meet every day. At Parkland heroes can be found in first responders who run toward danger, doctors and nurses who believe that all patients deserve to be treated with compassion, and patients who never give up on their recovery, no matter how long the road. It is these heroes – first responders, caregivers, patients and their families – who will be honored during this inaugural event.
