Helen Keller wrote, “Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” If there’s a theme to this year’s Local Heroes, it’s the act of reaching out. In one way or another, all these wildly diverse but no less extraordinary people have reached out – and lifted up – with empathy, or with an aim to dispel ignorance, or with advocacy for the injured, the disabled or the bereft.

All have gone above and beyond in their contribution to a community that is “full of the overcoming of it.” And all demonstrate with distinction just how brave, bold and beautiful our neighbours can be.
