2014 Annual Celebrity Inductee: Christopher Reeve
Superman Hall of Heroes inductee Christopher Reeve held many professions throughout his career, including actor, director and activist. Reeve not only played Superman on the big screen, he also showed the same ‘Man of Steel’ character away from the cameras. Since being paralyzed in an equestrian competition in 1995, Reeve not only put a human face on spinal cord injury, he motivated neuroscientists around the world to conquer the most complex diseases and conditions of the brain and central nervous system. Whether in a cape or in a chair, Reeve was a hero who exhibited unwavering courage and a tireless work ethic to deliver on his mission.
Read about the other 2014 Annual Celebrity Inductees, including Shaquille O’Neal and Rick and Dick Hoyt.
Honor someone special in your life with an induction into the Superman Hall of Heroes and let the world know what makes them your super hero. And yes, a portion of the sales will be donated to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation!
Matthew Reeve, Christopher’s son, stopped by Fox & Friends this morning to talk about today’s inductee ceremony in Times Square.
