From 10AM-4PM on Saturday, October 23rd, sixteen heroes from the Kids Are Heroes web site will converge on the Francis Scott Key Mall in Frederick, Maryland for a day of inspiration and celebration. They travel from various parts of the country; one hero is coming from as far away as Nairobi, Kenya!!
All the heroes present will have tables surrounding the fountain at the center court of the mall throughout the day. They will hand out pamphlets, engage people about their charities and how they volunteer and inspire other children in attendance.
Here is an agenda including the events of the day. We hope to see you come with your family – you certainly will be glad you did.
