The Cleveland Browns Hats Off to Our Heroes program was created following the 9/11 tragedy to support and salute the accomplishments and services of those from the local community. The Browns will proudly honor the men and women who risk their lives to serve our communities and country during each home game in the 2014 season. These distinguished men and women join us as our special guests seated in the HONOR ROW. The Honor Row is designed to express gratitude to those heroic individuals through an elite experience at a Browns home game as they are honored at the end of the 1st quarter by a standing ovation of appreciation from fans at FirstEnergy Stadium. Please be sure to turn your attention to the Jumbotron after the conclusion of the 1st quarter to honor those who serve our country! Hats Off to Our Heroes!
The Browns are grateful to the brave men and women of Northeast Ohio who so capably serve, protect, and defend.
The Hats Off to Our Heroes program is an annual and wide-ranging program that focuses on recognizing and honoring local heroes while creating an atmosphere of pride among all our fans. Originally centered on programming during September, the Hats Off to Our Heroes program is now highlighted during events and initiatives throughout the entire year.
The Cleveland Browns Hats Off to Our Heroes program was awarded the '2003 best Single Program' from the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame, who referred to the program as "intriguing and creative."
