about the awards
Since our inaugural event in 2002, Border Heroes has been our annual opportunity to express our gratitude to the greater El Paso community. We owe much of our success in the past, present, and future to the generosity of our volunteers, donors, and collaborators. Border Heroes is our chance to thank our supporters while also paying homage to our border community, which we continue to fight for every day.
To honor those in our community that have impacted our cause the greatest, we present a series of Border Hero awards. A Border Hero is one who refuses to live idly by while injustices face the El Paso community. They work continually to make El Paso great and to enact virtuous social change.
