The Karen Albond Courage in Caring Award, presented annually by the Health Association of Niagara County Inc. (HANCI) beginning in 2005, honors individuals in Niagara County who persevere in service to others despite physical or developmental disabilities, or chronic illness. The award is named for Karen Albond, a longtime HANCI Board member who passed away in 2003 after significant volunteer and professional service to the Niagara community.

Key criteria are as follows:

  • Nominees must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Nominees must live, work and/or volunteer in Niagara County.
  • Nominees must have a physical or developmental disability or be affected by a chronic illness or health condition.
  • Nominees must be engaged in service that improves the quality of life for others.

Nominations are solicited and accepted from organizations and individuals in the Niagara community. A panel of HANCI staff and volunteers, including representatives of the Albond family, select the winner. All nominations must be received by July 12, 2024. The award will be presented at HANCI’s Annual Meeting and Luncheon this September at the Niagara Falls Country Club.
