AURORA HEALTH CARE HEROES TO SERVE AS GRAND MARSHALS OF FOURTH OF JULY PARADE 
Aurora HC Heroes
They have led the way in protecting the health of our community during the pandemic, and now health care heroes in Aurora will lead the City's Fourth of July parade as grand marshals. 
"We can never thank our health care heroes enough for their unwavering and steady leadership throughout the pandemic," said Aurora Mayor Richard C. Irvin. "It is fitting to have them lead this year's Fourth of July Parade as we continue to transition beyond the pandemic and back into full productivity. We owe them a debt of gratitude for guiding us on the road to healthiness and wholeness as one Aurora." 
The 2021 Fourth of July Parade will begin at 10 a.m. on Sunday, July 4, in the heart of downtown Aurora, with the theme 'One Aurora, One America.' 
Health Care representatives from Rush-Copley, AMITA Mercy and VNA Health Care, and other healthcare institutions will collectively represent all health care heroes in Aurora.
The grand marshals' float will lead more than 50 patriotic, energetic and diverse units, including public safety teams, veteran organizations, elected officials, dance teams, car clubs, youth groups, several cultural performances, and more. 
IF YOU ARE A HEALTH CARE HERO WHO WANTS TO JOIN THE GRAND MARSHALS' FLOAT AND HAVEN'T BEEN REGISTERED BY YOUR HEALTH CARE INSTITUTION, YOU CAN SIGN-UP  AT
