UGA HEROs strives to improve the quality of life for the 12,000 children in Georgia by raising money to support the programs offered by H.E.R.O. for Children, Inc., spreading awareness about the growing problem of pediatric AIDS, and participating in service initiatives aimed at improving the lives of affected children.
UGA HEROs now unites more than two thousand collegians under this mission statement. Our vision for the future is to not only keep growing in members and donations, but to increase awareness of our cause across the state of Georgia.
We strive to make every member feel valued and make every dollar count toward improving the quality of life of our wonderful HERO kids. Our vision is to continue impacting our campus, community, and children.
How Do We Do It?
UGA HEROs rallies students across campus in a year-long fundraiser that culminates in a grand finale at the HERO Olympics–an event for these children and UGA students.
UGA HEROs works closely with the UGA football team, Athletic Association, and both Head Football Coach Mark Richt and Georgia Legend Vince Dooley (who are both H.E.R.O. Board members) to help rally students and raise more money for children with HIV/AIDS in Georgia.
