At least twice a year Guardians of Justice has the pleasure of celebrating the lives of children and their families fighting cancer with BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation. In July and December, Christmas parties are held and our characters are always so happy to join in on the fun and festivities.
The Friday before MegaCon Orlando, Guardians of Justice has a tradition of making a very fun and eventful visit to BrightStart Pediatrics. The location on Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando is always an easy stop for our characters before heading to a long Convention day. Not to mention, what better way to start the day than to bring smiles to some fantastic children? That’s exactly what Batman, Harley Quinn, Cat Woman, and Supergirl got to do 🙂
Every year that we have had the pleasure of attending the Autism Family Fun Day in Clermont, it has been an amazing experience! This event is a treasure trove of resources for families with children and adults living within the Autism Spectrum. Be sure to check it out in the future!
Guardians of Justice were so excited to be invited to participate as entertainment for our 3rd annual Autism Walk with the Autism Society of Greater Orlando. This event has become a yearly favorite for many of our member which is easily seen by our large group in attendance.
We were delighted to join JDRF for our second year at UCF’s Memory Mall for the One Walk.

Our connection with the Walt Disney Pavilion is one that we treasure. On November 29th, we enjoyed our final visit of 2016 to bring smiles and hope to children within the pediatric areas of Florida Hospital. Batman, Harley Quinn, Winter Soldier, a Jedi, and a Sith all roamed the halls of the hospital while being guided by some of the amazing employees of the hospital.
Every fall, Center for Independent Living supporters and volunteers take critical steps to raise awareness for disability rights and inclusion in Guardians of Justice Stroll and Roll 2016Central Florida. This year, we were invited to join in walking for independence on September 17, 2016 at Harbor Park in Lake Baldwin.

On an early September evening, Guardians of Justice gathered to join force-friendly festivities at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs. Our organization was requested to appear at the Sunset Premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As the representation of Star Wars characters has been growing within our group, we jumped at the chance to finally represent our organization at Altamonte’s favorite park and home of Red Hot and Boom.
Prior to the start of the movie while families were scoping out their spots in the grass, our members gathered and posed for photos before showtime.
The end of our month of August was capped with another wonderful visit to the Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital. Our organization loves having an on-going relationship with the children-focused hospital to allow us to visit and bring smiles to the all of the patients within.
For this particular event, we gathered up a group of heroes, including Batman, Superman, Green Arrow, Hawkeye, and a Jedi thrown in to bring a little of the Force to the young padawans. Our characters were met with excitement by both patients and caregivers, alike.
Visits to local hospitals are one of the main reasons that Guardians of Justice was founded and we love being able to bring the smiles to these kids that need them the most.
On a beautiful Friday Afternoon, a princess and a band of heroes from across the multiverse gathered to visit Florida Hospital South to bring happiness to children and parents.
Once our team of eight arrived, we were were greeted by hospital administration, then divided into two groups and assigned an escort. The children that we had the opportunity to visit were surprised, overjoyed, and shy – which is always to be expected. Characters like Batman can sometimes be overwhelming to meet in person, but with a little conversation he is always warmed up to.
This specific visit was accompanied by Guardians who were visiting the hospital for the first time,
