Faron Hall — the man who helped rescue two people from the river earlier this year on two separate occasions — will receive three awards today.
The Winnipegger who was dubbed a ‘homeless hero,’ but is no longer homeless, will receive two awards from the Manitoba Lifesaving Association, as well as the Hero Award from the international Supreme Master Television Network.
Rick Frost, CEO of The Winnipeg Foundation, and Faron will present the first grant from the Faron Hall National Fund for the Homeless to Winnipeg’s Main Street Project.
The awards will be given out later this morning at the Main Street Project.
