In early 2021, The Life In The Arena Foundation chose to begin a search for responders and frontline heroes that have gone far and above the call of duty with little to no recognition.  It was decided to select these recipients as we discovered them with no set calendar dates or annual selection process.

In the wake of the 2020 COVID year we knew that there were many responders and frontline heroes out there, and we merely wanted to select a few that could receive something special for their efforts and perhaps, on behalf of all those we could not award.

The Life In The Arena Frontline Heroes Award is a new project for our foundation and the awards will be be presented through the Frontline Heroes Museum where these recipients will forever have their names and pictures on our walls.

It is here that you will find the list of our selections and recipients along with their stories so please check back soon!

Do you have a responder we should consider or perhaps you would like to become a sponsor of this effort? Please contact us today!

Qualifying heroes include, but are not limited to current and former firefighters, paramedics, EMTs, law enforcement and all other first responders. Special agency such as customs, border patrol, FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. Doctors, nurses, medical practitioners.  All ranks of active military, reserves and veterans of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.
