Brave Hearts 2019


The American Red Cross of Southeast Wisconsin presents Brave Hearts, our annual event to recognize individuals who have prevented life-threatening situations from occurring, come to the aid of another, or contributed to the safety of our community through a single act or ongoing activity.
