RICHMOND, Va. – WTVR CBS 6 profiles ordinary people doing amazing things in our weekly “Heroes Among Us” features and Allen and Allen is so looking to honor folks making a difference.

“Hometown Heroes” is the name of a program the law firm created seven years ago to honor people young and old making a difference in the Richmond area.

Grace Gallagher

Grace Gallagher, the executive director of the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation, received the award in 2016.

The foundation is named after her daughter who suffered a heart attack and died after finishing a half marathon back in 2014.

The mission of the foundation is to help teenagers who are battling depression, which Grace said that Cameron had dealt with prior to her death.
