Hero For A Day is an action packed event taking place on Saturday, May 20th, 2017 from 12-3pm.
This year, it will be held at Willamalane Center in Springfield, Oregon.
This event allows foster children to be transformed
into the heroes we all know they are. 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 also to raise awareness of the foster care system. This event is free for children in
foster care and $50 for general admission.
Our past hero activity stations consisted of:
Real Fire Truck & Fire Safety

To become a station or be involved in any other capacity, please contact

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. Our third annual Hero For A Day is coming back on May 20th, 2017 from 12-3pm!
