The four Richardson Real Heroes and the organizations for which they volunteer:
- Ida Dwight, First United Methodist Church of Richardson
- Jim and Norma Murphy, Methodist Richardson Medical Center
- Jeff Stuart, Network of Community Ministries

In its sixth year, the Richardson Real Heroes program was founded by the Richardson Coalition to recognize some of Richardson’s unsung heroes who, through their “silent generosity”, have positively affected the lives of others in Richardson. The Richardson Real Heroes program seeks to demonstrate the benefits of volunteerism both to the community and to the volunteer themselves.
