BRAVE Awards Recipients Announced
Date:11/18/2011

DUBLIN, Nov. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fourteen caregivers from around the world have been announced today as Recipients or Distinguished Honorees in the inaugural Shire BRAVE Awards, an international program that aims to recognize everyday people who serve as caregivers. Launched by Shire in June 2011, the BRAVE Awards is the first and only awards initiative of its kind that honors the courage and dedication of non-professional caregivers, the unsung everyday heroes who provide regular and consistent care for other people.  

"Helping another person through consistent, dedicated care is one of the most generous acts and we believe that such caregivers deserve to be recognized and celebrated," said Angus Russell, Shire Chief Executive Officer. "This unique program strikes to the core of Shire's purpose of enabling people with life-altering conditions to lead better lives. We are privileged to honor these individuals who are models of courage and selflessness through their devotion to caring for others, often in the face of adversity."

Shire received nearly 400 nominations from seven countries over 10 weeks for the BRAVE Awards. The BRAVE Awards Selection Committee, which included select Shire employees and Gary Barg, Editor in Chief of Today's Caregiver and caregiver.com as well as author of The Fearless Caregiver, reviewed and ranked the nominations based on the qualities that define Shire's own BRAVE culture: respect, courage, dedication, impact and patience. Shire's nearly 5,000 employees from across the world helped to select the Recipients and Distinguished Honorees from the pool of eligible finalists.  

Shire is proud to honor 14 people as part of the inaugural BRAVE Awards; 10 Recipients each will receive $10,000 USD or the local currency equivalent, and four Distinguished Honorees will each be awarded $2,500 USD or the local currency equivalent, for a total of $110,000 USD.
