Everyday Hero Kids: MISSION POSSIBLE

The fifth annual Everyday Hero Kids: MISSION POSSIBLE will take place on Saturday, August 8, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Bloomer Park located at 345 John R. Rd., Rochester Hills, MI 48307 where children ages 4 to 13 can meet local first responders, participate in an obstacle course, receive goodie bags, and be eligible to win prizes. The cost is $15 for each child. Participants may register on the day of the event but are highly encouraged to register in advance. Everyday Hero Kids: MISSION POSSIBLE is being held to raise funds and awareness to enable the rescue and rehabilitation of children who are victims of human child trafficking.

“Bring your family and friends – we can do so much more together than we could ever do alone. Looking for something fun for the kids to do? We have the perfect thing to get your kids moving and having a blast with coaches from Fit Body Boot Camp in Rochester Hills. Meet and take pictures with local First Responders. We need you,” says event coordinator and kindergarten teacher, Laurie Bradshaw. “You can help by registering in advance. We have a super strategic plan in place for the safety and fun of everyone involved. Come out and join the fun and be an everyday hero!”

The event provides children the opportunity to interact with front line professionals from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department, the Michigan State Police Department, and the Rochester Hills Fire Department and EMS and all of their respective vehicles.

During MISSION POSSIBLE, children engage in physical activities throughout the obstacle course as they progress through stations where they will obtain a trinket and be cheered on by first responders and program sponsors. There will be plenty of photo opportunities and participants are encouraged to wear a superhero costume or tee shirt.

Everyone who registers will be entered into a raffle to win prizes. Goodie bags will be prepared in advance and handed out to participants. Music will be provided by a DJ who will also help to make announcements throughout the event.

A safety mitigation plan has been submitted to Bloomer Park which recognizes the most up to date requirements. Hand washing stations are readily available and social distancing guidelines are a part of the event. Children will stand on superhero power squares at the stations that will limit the number of people in any given area. Multi-purpose headbands will be provided and can be used as a cloth facemask. Staggered start times will also provide a safe way for participants to engage in the obstacle course. “Things have changed, but we are ready. We want you to know the safety of your children is our top priority” says Bradshaw.

All proceeds are donated to Dayspring Ministries International, a non-profit 501c3 organization. For any questions contact: EndChildTrafficking101@gmail.com. Please visit the Facebook Page, Everyday Heroes Needed, for more details about the event.
