Ron Creel
Healing Hands Award

     The Healing Hands Award is a recognition of unique actions by individuals to promote the concept of healing, grace, comfort and inspiration to those whom have been struck by disaster, both natural and man-made, by responding to the needs of a neighbor, friend, or stranger, and thus motivating others to greater achievement.

      Through their hands, hard work, and dedication, the recipient of the Healing Hands Award has been an influence to the world around them, making it better and setting an example for others to emulate. Such actions easily come to mind in recipients of the award.

     In 2002, President George W. Bush and New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani were the first to receive the award. These leaders comforted the country's largest city and an entire nation during the still shocking attacks on New York City and Washington, DC on the morning of September 11, 2001.
