Heroes Among Us

Program Overview

The Heroes Among Us program is one of the premier community outreach programs in professional sports. Established as an initiative of the Boston Celtics in 1997, Heroes Among Us honors individuals who have made an overwhelming impact on the lives of others.

The Heroes Among Us Award is presented to an individual or individuals who, through their unique commitment and humanitarian spirit, have made exceptional and lasting contributions to our community. At every home game, the Celtics and their fans have saluted the exemplary efforts of these citizens during a special in-game presentation on the legendary parquet floor.

To date, more than 650 individuals have received the Heroes Among Us Award. This program is proudly presented by the Mass State Lottery. Last year the Lottery returned over $955 million in net profit to the Commonwealth. These funds flowed back to the 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts and helped pay for local improvement projects, public safety and education initiatives. Additional support provided by Comcast SportsNet and 98.5 The Sports Hub.

The Boston Celtics would like to thank Weldon Worldwide Chauffeured Services for providing complimentary transportation for each Heroes Among Us recipient to and from the game. Weldon Executive coach can be reached at 888.666.7077 or at www.weldonworldwide.com.
