Super Hero Sundays
Ava’s Avengers recently visited Ronald McDonald House Las Vegas. Every family staying at the house here in Las Vegas, NV got a gift bag, and personalized card from Ava. On top of that, they baked cookies, brownies, and lemon bars so the families all had treats waiting for them when they get back from the hospital each night.
One Sunday of each month, members of Ava’s Avengers will be hosting Super Hero Sundays at Ronald McDonald House, where they bring gift bags and bake for the families while their children are in the hospital. By clicking on “donate now” above, you can help lift spirits month after month.
Huge thank you to the amazing crew at StartLine Racing for teaming up, and making magic possible. Donations to Ava’s Avengers make this kind of support for families possible. Thank you to all who contribute to our fight to support families in their darkest hour.
Beginning in October, Ava’s Avengers set out on a massive community outreach campaign throughout the entire Las Vegas valley. Through cooperation with schools, childcare facilities, churches, foster organizations, and community organizations, Ava’s Avengers has been able to distribute Halloween costumes, educational materials, toys, clothes, books, and assistance to families in need of assistance.
With their upcoming 12 K’s of Christmas campaign, Ava’s Avengers will help create Holiday Magic for families throughout the valley.

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!
Huge thank you to everyone who contributed to our mission! Whether it was your time, energy, or money; your good deeds went to helping those in need. We also want to thank Amy and Manny for an awesome tour of the facilities. It was an amazing experience!
On to the next mission!!!
