Heroes Among Us - October 2009

October 30, 2009 - Brenda and Steve Couture

Heroes Among Us

The Heroes Among Us award is a program of the Boston Celtics, presented by the Mass State Lottery.

Brenda and Steve Couture [coo-chur] are committed to making a difference and helping support our troops stationed throughout the Middle East. They have transformed their salon into a drop-off station for donations and have organized multiple events including bake sales, raffles, and promotional days -- of which all proceeds have gone to their 'Support Our Troops' program.

This year alone, Brenda and Steve have already sent out over 125 care packages, lifting spirits and improving morale for hundreds of soldiers serving to protect our freedom.

For their outstanding efforts in support of our troops, please welcome Brenda and Steve Couture as tonight's Heroes among Us!

Joining Brenda and Steve on court to express her gratitude was Amanda, the daughter of one of these soldiers.

Heroes Among Us

The Heroes Among Us award is a program of the Boston Celtics, presented by the Mass State Lottery.

New Kids On the Block band member, Danny Wood, lost his mother, Betty, to Breast Cancer 10 years ago. Ever since, he has been a relentless and passionate advocate in the fight against this terrible disease.

To ensure that his mother's legacy lives on, Danny created The Betty Wood Breast Cancer Foundation. This foundation has hosted multiple walks and events to help raise awareness. Additionally, Danny and his band have amazingly raised almost $500,000 to help find a cure!

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, please join us in welcoming tonight's Hero Among Us, Danny Wood!
