TORONTO – Who is a local hero? Bets are, you know an everyday hero in your community. That special person who works tirelessly to make the lives of others a little bit easier, a little bit better.

For the second year, Canada’s Walk of Fame will acknowledge an everyday hero through the Peter Soumalias Unsung Hero Honour – which recognizes a special Canadian whose outstanding work in the arts, culture or sports positively impacts their community and inspires the next generation.

The deserving recipient will be announced this fall and will receive a $5,000 honorarium and a trip to Toronto to experience the glitz and glamour of the 2016 Canada Walk of Fame Celebration Events on Thursday, October 6, 2016, where they will be honoured for their achievements.

To nominate your local hero, visit www.canadaswalkoffame.com/programs/unsung-hero.

The deadline for submission to be eligible for this year’s honour is Sunday, July 31, 2016 at 11:59 pm ET.
