One "Anthem Angel" is selected and notified prior to each Colts regular season home game. Each "Angel" receives four VIP tickets, a feature story and photo in the Colts gameday magazine (The Scout) and on Colts.com, and special on-field recognition at a home game.
The seventh "Anthem Angel" of 2018 is Valerie Hagerty of Indianapolis.
In her role as a nurse, Hagerty has made an impact on countless patients' lives. She serves selflessly and makes sure to treat each patient with the upmost respect.
Hagerty's carries these same qualities over to her personal life as she volunteers for Brooke's Place, where she gives support and time to children and teens who are grieving the death of a loved one. She volunteers for their ongoing support groups and has been involved with their camp, Camp Healing Tree, for more than 12 years.
Hagerty is appreciative of being able to provide support to these kids during such a difficult time and watching them transform and heal.
The Colts will accept online nominations for future "Angels" at Colts.com/AnthemAngels through December 10. Nominees should be employed in human service-related professions, from first responders to educators and social workers. Nominations must include a brief essay about the nominee, sharing their story about the actions that have made him or her a hero.
