Ava’s Avengers constantly strives to serve as a source of inspiration for others by leading from the front. Be it igniting a fire for people to get healthy and push their limits, or inspiring them to become active in helping others in their community, our goal continues to be to help others find their inner hero, and join the fight.
While inspiring friends, family, and strangers across the country is certainly a way to make a lasting impact on families and communities throughout the country, we realize that forging the next generation of heroes is the way to build a better future.
The Heroes of Tomorrow program is designed to help build the next generation of heroes, who will go through life engrained with the virtues and work ethic of heroes. Be it online or in person, coaches and teachers will guide the younger generation, teaching them elements of personal health and fitness, the value of hard work, and the importance of using their own time, abilities, and passions to help others.
In short, Ava’s Avengers have created a hero academy to send the next generation of heroes into the future with hopes of inspiring their peers, and continuing to join the fight in efforts to help those in their darkest hour.

Ava's Avengers in the News!
Kevin learned of a local man who suffered a stroke and had medical bills piling up during his extended hospital stay. Many of our Avengers rallied and ran 13.1 miles with him this summer to help raise awareness, funds, and hope. This is what being an Avenger is all about. Fighting the battles for those who can’t. While it may have just been a few miles for us, this gesture will be something this family remembers forever. Knowing you’re not alone during the darkest hours makes all the difference in the world. Thanks for being amazing, guys. Month after month, we’re making a positive impact.

Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House 2020
Ava's Avengers started a mission in January 2019: to raise enough money to pay for a room at Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House for the entire year of 2020. We want to bring hope to families that stay here by paying for their stay, so they have one less thing to worry about when their child needs medical services.
We accomplished our mission on April 27th, 2019. Pictured here is Ava, presenting Amy, the Director of Operations, and Manny, the Executive Director at Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House, with a check to pay for all of 2020 for the Ava’s Avengers room, Room #25!
