Real Salt Lake and American express are proud to recognize Lee Rasmussen as the recipient of the “Heroes Among Us” honor on October 14th, 2015. Lee dedicated herself for over nine years to Susan G. Komen Utah in the fight against Breast Cancer. With her belief that curing one cancer will lead to a cure of all, she volunteers her time doing everything from stuffing t-shirts to chairing last year’s Race for the Cure. Lee survived Breast Cancer eleven years ago and uses that experience with a foundation of positive energy and love to help others with this disease. Susan G. Komen Utah says her commitment to supporting local Breast Cancer programs as well as research to end this disease is exceptional and her support for others impacted by Breast Cancer is unparalleled.
The Junior League
Real Salt Lake and American Express are proud to recognize The Junior League as the recipient of the “Heroes Among Us” honor on October 17th, 2015. The Junior League is an organization of women committed to making a difference in the lives of women and children in the community. Established 84 years ago, these women volunteers are trained to become leaders in the community, supporting causes related to combating childhood obesity, helping women transition back into the workforce and supporting public health. They organize the state’s largest free health fair, The Care Fair, every July. This event eliminates the major barriers many Utah families face to receiving basic health and human services. They recently gave the community access to their Dental Care Fair offering free dental care and immunizations.
