Hero For A Day

Calling All Heroes!

Saturday May 20th, 2017!

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.

  • Real Fire Truck & Fire Safety

  • Photo Booth
  • Fly Fishing and Foam Archery Lessons with Cabela's

  • Hero Accessory Station
  • Meet Heroes from the "Big Screen"
  • Hand's-On Experiments with The Science Factory
