This is the type of news we love to write about. Feel-good stories like this shine a bright light during these tough times. As part of Mazda North American Operations’ (MNAO) “Mazda Heroes: Honoring The Human Spirit” program, they’ve announced the names of the first three winners of a new 2020 Mazda MX-5 100th Anniversary Special Edition.

Nominations for “Mazda Heroes” were done by peers and were received by Mazda this past October. The countless stories they received involved young and old putting other people first by leveraging their personal skills and resources in the name of helping others.

“This year has been full of challenges and we wanted to lean into our brand’s heritage of finding innovative ways to brighten people’s lives,” MNAO President Jeff Guyton said. “We were inspired to create the Mazda Heroes program to honor all those who are working tirelessly to uplift their own communities. We hope through Mazda’s acknowledgment of their efforts, they’ll feel empowered to continue to give back to those around them.”
