Be Brave For Life wants to recognize and honor everyday heroes.
Sometimes bravery is remarkable, unfathomable courage by the youngest and oldest of human souls who rush forward to help everyone and put their lives on the line to save others. The runners in Boston who kept running to the hospital to donate blood were Remarkable. Beautiful. Stunning. Incredible.
Other times bravery is calm, methodical. Sometimes it looks quite peaceful. Sometimes it’s shaking off the noise and clamor and distraction and realizing with simple focus that your next steps require you to take those steps and walking forward is the best and happiest way forward.

Brave for Life Nomination:
The Brave For Life initiative is about celebrating real life heroes by creating a community around bravery. Bravery is a powerful force that keeps the world turning because it brings confidence, change, and hope. To Riley’s mom, Laura ~ “Bravery is the hand squeeze Riley gives me each time before surgery, because she doesn’t want me to be afraid.” It is Riley’s bravery that inspires so many people to support the Be Brave For Life Foundation. Riley’s bravery continues to inspire people of all ages to confront his or her own challenges with perspective and positivity.
We all know brave individuals that we admire. Bravery has many faces: a selfless caregiver, civil servant, teacher, health care professional, loved one fighting a serious illness or living with a disability, a person who takes a stand against injustice or intolerance, a recovering addict, just to name a few. Sometimes bravery is remarkable, incomprehensible courage; other times it is serene and methodical. We need your help! We are looking for individuals who are courageous and positive while inspiring others to be the same way. If you know someone who deserves recognition, nominate them here today!
