The 2020 MADD Heroes have been decided and we are so excited to share them with you! While we would normally be preparing for a big awards ceremony to do this for them, this year things look a little different. So instead we will be taking the show on the road as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, we want to share with you all the amazing heroes that will be honored!

These amazing men and women have gone above and beyond the call of duty throughout the year 2019. Their work made them stand above their counterparts and competitors. We are so thankful for all they have done to keep our state safe.

We look forward to honoring all of these Heroes and to sharing more about the work they have done with all of you. Until then, we thank all those who took time to nominate a hero and we congratulate the 2020 MADD Heroes for their incredible work!
