O Heroes


A Family For Every Child's first annual A Hero For A Day event will be on Sunday, February 15, 2015. On this day, boys ages 2-18 will be treated like a hero. This event is designed to raise awareness for foster children in Oregon and make all boys feel special.

Heroes (children) should arrive on time to pick up their passport and meet their assigned captain. All Heroes must wear clothing that allows them to run, jump, climb, and play. Tennis shoes are required.

A Hero for a Day is free for foster boys and $50 for community boys. This will help supplement the cost of the event. After registering you will receive your ticket two weeks prior to the event. During the last two weeks of registration, registrants should pick up their tickets at the event.
