Meet the top 10 CNN Heroes of 2017 – Watch How to vote for the 2017 CNN Hero of the Year
The 11th annual “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute” airs Sunday, December 17 at 8 p.m. ET.
Yet they all share one goal: to improve the lives of those around them.
This year’s top 10 CNN Heroes include an amputee who created her own support network, a cop who empowers the children of Chicago’s South Side, and a determined mother employing dozens of developmentally challenged young adults.
Each of these heroes will receive a $10,000 cash prize. One of the 10 will be named “CNN Hero of the Year” and receive an additional $100,000 for his or her cause.
Their efforts are being highlighted at “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute,” a global broadcast event on CNN airing December 17 at 8 p.m. ABC’s Kelly Ripa will join Anderson Cooper as co-host for this star-studded 11th-annual show, live from New York’s American Museum of Natural History.
