Michigan Heroes Project - Join Hands and be a Hero

Explore how ordinary Michiganders become extraordinary!

We created a place to lift up the Heroes of our communities

Each day in the great state of Michigan, citizens and organizations are changing lives and solving community challenges. The MI Heroes Campaign was created to recognize individuals and organizations that have made a difference for Michigan and its residents.

Imagine the power when we work together to uplift our everyday heroes, showcase their stories, and have their collective heroism inspire us all to make a difference.

Hero Spotlight: COVID-19

Since March 2020, Michigan Residents have been stepping up to serve their communities, and continue to do so as we move along the road to recovery. We want to unite our state and recognize heroic efforts during the pandemic that have transformed lives and inspire everyone to serve others.

To Those We've Lost:

Not only do we celebrate the Heroes of Michigan, we remember them. Many heroes have been lost over the past 18 months  – celebrating their lives and legacies has been more challenging. We want to make special mention of those heroes throughout this project and make sure they receive a just remembrance 

Start Your Own Hero Journey
