Everyday Heroes are the people who make McHenry County a great place to live and work.

Early next year, the Northwest Herald will honor McHenry County's Everyday Heroes with its annual special section and video presentation.

Chosen heroes will be honored at a breakfast awards event at the Crystal Lake Country Club on March 6th, 2014. A special print and online section will feature the Everyday Heroes, February 22, 2014.

Who is an Everyday Hero? An Everyday Hero gives tirelessly and selflessly. An Everyday Hero makes a difference through actions rather than words. Everyday Heroes avoid the spotlight, but deserve our appreciation. We know they are all around us, doing what they can to make the lives they touch better. Through commitment to local citizens, charitable acts or duty above and beyond, our community's difference-makers will be recognized in McHenry County's Everyday Heroes editions, which will be published in print and online on February 22, 2014.

Join us on March 6 as we celebrate the 2014 award recipients at a breakfast in their honor.

Tickets for the 2014 breakfast are sold out.
