Emotional stories at Hometown Heroes event

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Hometown Heroes breakfast, now in its 12th year, honors local people who have shown unselfish character through heroic acts.

22News is proud to be a part of this annual event, where members of our community can hear the emotional stories of ordinary people who have done the extraordinary for others. This year’s honorees include a man who saved a neighbor’s life during a fire, a man who has donated blood and platelets twice a month for 12 years, and two athletes who stopped running a race in order to save someone on an opposing team who was having a seizure.

You can watch this deeply moving ceremony live on WWLP.com from 7:30-9:00 A.M on any device.
