Thank you to everybody who participated. Come back next week to celebrate our 2021 CGI Hero!
Even when times are challenging, we see people step up to do their part. Here at CGI® Impact Windows & Doors, we're recognizing those who go above and beyond in their local communities.
The nominations for CGI heroes from across Florida are in, and we've awarded $1,000 to four regional finalists. Now, we need your help to pick one grand prize winner to receive an additional $5,000.
ABOUT OUR HEROES:
Fort Walton Beach, FL
"If you can be anything, be kind... It makes the world go 'round."
We’re so excited to congratulate our CGI® Hero, Tori Mason, a school resource officer from Niceville. Among her many community efforts, Tori launched a fundraising campaign to turn a family's lights back on in time for Christmas for a child she met at her school.
"God gave me a gift. And if I don't use that gift to help others, I don't deserve to have it."
A big congratulations to our CGI® Hero, Janet Woods, a volunteer and quilter from Fort Lauderdale. Janet has been making quilts for the families of fallen officers in conjunction with the 9463 Foundation for close to 10 years. She also made more than 9,300 masks since the beginning of the pandemic, donating them to police and fire agencies, hospitals, and others all over the country.
Cutler Bay, FL
"I love fighting fires and providing medical services... but really, mentoring and influencing is what I love to do."
Today we’re happy to congratulate our CGI® Hero, Drew Rogers, a Marion County firefighter. A 20-year veteran of MCFR, Drew takes pride in mentoring high school seniors, fulfilling a dream of helping others in similar situations to his entering adulthood. He also led efforts to secure funding for the Everyone Goes Home Fitness Center, aimed at improving trainees' physical and mental fitness.
"What motivates me is hearing of deaths that could have been prevented... it happens all the time and that just breaks my heart. It keeps me pushing to make sure we have these changes and we're saving more kids' lives."
We’re thrilled to congratulate our last CGI® Hero, Bethany Keime, a Heart Warrior from Miami. Bethany created the HeartCharged nonprofit and Instagram account to build awareness of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the leading killer of student-athletes. She puts on community heart screenings, teaches CPR and how to use an external defibrillator, and she’s even helping to change the law.
