The Wheeling Nailers will be recognizing three everyday heroes in the community. You can submit yourself as a candidate, or you can submit someone that you believe deserves the credit for all of the hard work they put in on a daily basis. It's up to you.
Everyday heroes winners will be honored with a prize pack that the Nailers believe is worthy of all that person does, and one that aims to spread the act of giving back to the community.
