The Marin County Red Cross honored several people Thursday morning for life-saving, extraordinary courage and kindness.

A big crowd turned out to pay tribute to the honorees and organizations at the annual Red Cross Heroes Awards breakfast. They honorees included a young girl who founded Operation Warm Blanket to hand out blankets to the homeless, two off-duty nurses who performed CPR on an injured bicyclist, an off-duty firefighter/surfer who saved two people in the bay from drowning.
