Nominate a Ralph White River Hero

One of the reasons the James River is so awesome is the countless unsung heroes in our community. Sing their praises by nominating your local hero.




There are lots of River Heroes. That neighbor that spends every single weekend picking up trash is one such hero. The teacher that initiates a lesson plan that takes kids out of the classroom and down to the river is another such hero.

Perhaps you know one such hero that is worthy of accolades.

Friends of James River Park:

In 2011, The Friends of James River launched the River Heroes Award to acknowledge and honor individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to James River Park. The award is now called the Ralph White River Hero Award in honor of former Park Manager Ralph White — one of the 2014 River Hero Award recipients.

Nominate that deserving someone by Sept 15, 2017Get all the details about eligibility and access the nomination forms.

And save the date for the Award Ceremony!

The Friends are excited to announce the date for our annual Ralph White River Hero Award Ceremony! Please save the date for October 5, 2017.
