Heroes in the Heartland

presented by Indiana Donor Network

This year we will pay serious tribute to the heroism of everyday Hoosiers whose exceptional commitment and caring enrich our lives without the benefit of capes, costumes or superpowers. They are our nurturers, protectors, guardians, and guides – our support and our strength. They grow our food. They feed our minds. They keep us safe and free.

Here’s to our Hoosier farmers, first responders, teachers, law officers, firefighters, and Armed Forces members past and present— our Heroes in the Heartland!

Who’s Your Hero?

Join us as we salute our friends, family, neighbors and everyday heroes who give so much of themselves.
