Your Real Champion® 

The “First” of the First Responders.  COVID has made us all more familiar with the term first-responder.  Health Care workers were under particular stress during COVID.  This is a story of heroism and loyalty – two Philadelphia police officers from the elite Highway Patrol who face conditions that have always been risky, not just heightened by the pandemic.
