PF&R Helps Celebrate Everyday Heroes at Breakfast of Champions


Representatives from Portland Fire & Rescue attended the Fred Meyer Breakfast of Champions this morning at the Oregon Convention Center to help honor local heroes who jumped into action and used their skills and smarts to save lives.

The Breakfast of Champions is the Oregon American Red Cross’ signature event to not only honor heroes but to raise funds to support disaster relief, CPR/first aid training and other services throughout the Oregon Trail Chapter's 16-county service area.

The local heroes honored included Brent Leong for a CPR rescue, pet hero 11-year-old dachshund Missy, Lisa Lyver for a professional rescue, Michelle Erdman for an AED rescue, Mike Borreggine for a first-aid rescue, Ryan Van Vactor, Annette Sansburn and Bella Pointer for a fire rescue, Kaiser Permanente African American Professional Association (KPAAPA) for blood donations, and Mari Meza for house fire rescue.  Read all the hero’s detailed stories by clicking here.

This year, in total the Oregon American Red Cross raised $150,000 in cash sponsorships and another $22,000 in in-kind response. This is a 61 percent increase over last year's sponsor results and the Oregon Red Cross's highest level of sponsorship since 2004.

Portland Fire & Rescue is proud to help honor these individuals

that exemplify courage, kindness, and unselfish character

through their acts of heroism in our local community.
