Hero For A Day

Hero For A Day
Hero for a Day is a special event, taking place on Sunday, February 15, 2015 from 12-3pm, that allows foster children to be transformed into heroes for one special day. Hero for a Day is for children ages 2 to 18 and is a day filled with tons of fun activities designed to create not only an educational and fun experience for local children, but raise awareness about the foster care system. This event is free for children in foster care and 50 dollars for community children.

Hero for a Day started as an idea after years of hosting Princess for a Day. We felt that we needed something special for boys to participate in. Our February 2015 activities will consist of:

Hero For A Day
Real Fire Truck and Fire Safety activities
Inflatable Fire Truck Slide
Inflatable Bounce House Obstacle
Boys assembled flying machines and tested them in the Vertical Wind
Football Obstacle Course
50 meter race with University of Oregon Athletes
Super Hero Photo Booth provided by Blue Bus Creatives
Fly Fishing Lessons provided by Cabala's
Food Court
Hero Accessory Station

To become a station or be involved in any other capacity, please contact
for more information on what it entails to be an activity station.

Our activities may change from year to year but we can ensure that we will have an action packed day for any child to enjoy. The second annual Hero For A Day is coming on February 15, 2015 from 12-3pm!

We would love for you to sponsor our next Hero for a Day! Please look over our sponsorship marketing packages for more information.


We are gladly accepting donations all year long for this event. Donations can include capes, masks, costumes, jet packs, and other hero related costumes. We will gladly take gently used Halloween costumes or home made hero accessories as well. With your help we will make it possible for every boy in the community feel like a hero for the day. You can mail any donation to our office, shop on our Amazon wish list, or sponsor a child!
