Valley Preferred Spirit of Courage
VALLEY PREFERRED SPIRIT OF COURAGE: Moving stories of fire rescues, a celebration of local heroes
The 2019 Spirit of Courage brought hundreds of firefighters, patrons, burn survivors, military veterans, and their families together to honor those who have risked their own lives for the sake of saving another. The 2019 event set a new record for sponsor donations! Former Green Beret Greg Stube was guest speaker and delivered a riveting talk on how to turn adversity and injury into a source of strength. Videos of award winners told their stories in emotional interviews and, in some cases, live footage.
Valley Preferred, the Burn Prevention Network, and Lehigh Valley Health Network's Regional Burn Center launched the Valley Preferred Spirit of Courage Award Program in 2005. The idea is to honor people in eastern and northeastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey who have risked their lives to save others from a burn or death by fire. The program also recognizes individuals and groups who have done an outstanding job promoting fire safety or burn prevention education.
