img_08The Thursday’s Heroes program started in 2006, sponsored by The Holly & Bronco Mendenhall Foundation. The aim of the program was to provide support, encouragement and financial aid to children & families that were facing significant life challenges. Over the last 8 years over 130 families have been received as Thursday’s Heroes. The impact of their recognition, however, has touched thousands of lives throughout the country.

Each and every year the impact of the Thursday’s Heroes Foundation grows, in large part because of the way our Hero Alumni seek to “Pay it Forward.”  We know that by spending one day with these Heroes, you’re lives will be changed forever.
