SARATOGA SPRINGS – NYRA, in partnership with CDPHP, will once again recognize a group of Hometown Heroes at Saratoga Race Course this summer. Hometown Heroes are individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to improving the quality of life for residents in their communities.
Recipients of the Hometown Heroes award, nominated by their community peers, will be honored in the Winner’s Circle at Saratoga Race Course with a race named in their honor. They will also receive complimentary tickets and hospitality courtesy of NYRA and CDPHP.
Five Hometown Heroes will be selected from a pool of Capital Region candidates nominated for their service to their community. Eligible nominees may include a teacher, first responder, healthcare worker, non-profit representative, student volunteer or anyone else who has made a meaningful contribution to improving the well-being of others.
Nominations may be submitted at CDPHP.com/hero through Aug. 5 at 11:59 p.m. Submissions should include contact information for both the nominee and their nominator as well as a brief description (250 words or less) of why the nominee should be recognized as a CDPHP Hometown Hero. Winners will be notified by Aug. 10.
