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.
Everyone was a hero at the Orlando NF Walk. The event, designated for the awareness and treatment of neurofibromatosis, was heavily themed for superheroes down to the last detail. Neurofibromatosis is a condition that causes tumors to form on the nerves, brain, and spinal cord. There is currently no cure, but there is a range of treatments that can be scary and invasive for young children. These NF Heroes are very brave.
The Orlando NF Walk proved heroes come in all ages, sizes, and walks of life. Children in capes eagerly greeted the Guardians of Justice with smiles and requests for photos.
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!
The Guardians of Justice were not the only Superhero’s at Ocala’s 4th Annual Outreach autism Services Network’s Best Outcomes Walk which has been dubbed OaSN Super Hero Autism Walk after the Guardians made such a lasting impression on the walk last year.
OaSN utilizes this Autism focused walk each year to help raise funds for their organization and to have a little extra fun. Outreach Autism Services Network Inc. ™, (formerly Ocala Autism Support Network), OASN, is a nonprofit agency founded May 12, 2011 offering free autism services to the community.

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.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Their strength lies in their exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.
Spiderman, Wolverine, Qui Gon Jinn, Belle, Gaston, Rapunzel, Star Lord, Cyclops, and Green Arrow had a great day with the children and families.
Tis the season to spread joy and happiness to all the boys and girls. The Guardians of Justice were special guests once again for the BASE Camp Annual Christmas Party. Guardians have participated in their Christmas and Christmas in July party for the past few years.
BASE Camp (Believe, Achieve, Support and Educate) provides a year-round base of support for children and families who are facing the challenge of living with cancer and other life-threatening hematological illnesses by serving not only the children who are patients, but their brothers and sisters too as well as a place of support for children whose parents are in treatment.

On November 26,2016 we were asked to attend the Small Business Saturday in North Fort Meyers. The event was set to benefit two non-profit organizations, the first being Caleb’s Crusade – a charitable organization dedicated to aiding those dealing with the financial hardships of having a child with cancer.
We were absolutely thrilled to return to Lake Eola this year for our second opportunity to join Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida at their annual Step Up for Down Syndrome Buddy Walk hosted at Lake Eola. October 22nd was one of the first beautiful fall mornings that us Floridians are grateful for after a long hot summer, and as the Guardians crew assembled on either side of the starting line, we were anxious to get the walk started and make some memories with some wonderful children.
