About Heroes, Saints & Legends

Heroes, Saints & Legends was established in 1990 to honor extraordinary individuals who, through a lifetime commitment to leadership, service and devotion to the community, have transformed lives and communities for the better.  Funds raised through Heroes, Saints & Legends benefit the ministry of Wesley Woods which includes benevolent financial assistance, wellness programming and pastoral care to the older adults served throughout 10 Wesley Woods communities.
