M&T received nearly 200 submissions from individuals throughout its geographic footprint. The five finalists are:
Ronald D. –
As a firefighter, Ronald risks his life in the service of others. But that's not the most important job he holds. "Every moment that I spend with my son means the world to me," he wrote alongside his submission — a moving video of a rainy day he and Jr. spent together at
David K. –
David has a zest for life, and a passion for pursuing what's important to him. In his video entry, he showed us. "The video represents freedom of choice and the ability to enjoy life at every moment given," he explained.
Andy B. –
Family, work, responsibility: Most of us juggle a lot to make it work. Andy takes the modern balancing act to a whole new level. We'll just let him explain. "I have a passion for juggling while riding my unicycle. I do it almost every day weather permitting. Helps me stay fit and reduces stress."
Kat M. –
"My dogs save my life every day," Kat told us. "They are my emotional support animals, and my family." In her touching video, she shows us the connection she has with these special canines, including one that's been in her life for almost 19 years.
Robbe R. –
Robbe is going places, literally. The avid runner says the sport turned his life around, and introduced him to countless friends and new places. "Now my family has started running as well. It's changed me forever."
