Hero for a Day 2022
Thank you so much to everyone who attended, volunteered at, donated to, and otherwise supported our 2022 Hero For a Day event! It was our first in-person Hero For a Day event since 2019, and we had the oppertunity to turn nearly 150 community kids into superheroes. Attendees were able to meet their favorite comic book characters, and then learn how to be heroes themselves. Between touring a fire truck, meeting ambassador animals, rock climbing with Spiderman, exploring police vehicles, constructing sailboats, and more: it was an action-packed day we'll never forget.
A huge thank you to all of our amazing community partners and super sponsors for making this event happen.
