Hero For A Day

Calling All Heroes!

Hero For A Day is an action packed event taking place on Saturday, May 18, 2019 from 12-3pm. This year, it will be held at Bob Keefer 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
  • Hero Snack Shack
  • Photo Booth
  • Fly Fishing and Foam Archery Lessons with Cabela's
  • Race University of Oregon Athletes
  • Hero Accessory Station
  • Meet Heroes from the "Big Screen"
  • Hand's-On Experiments with The Science Factory
  • Martial Arts Demonstrations
  • Mock-Operation with Doctors from RiverBend Hospital

This year will also include Rock Climbing!
