Do you recognize any of these characters..umm, I mean heroes?
Support HAVAN Heroes taking the leap in support of kids with disabilities heading to Easter Seals House Summer Camps for Kids.
We're at XX% of our team goal to get each Hero up on the roof to rappel down the 25 story Guinness Building in Vancouver on September 12th. We'll be hosting a pep rally and post rappel event on the day. Mark your calendars to join us on September 12th for the party! It's a great way to support and connect with community. Donate today! 

TIP OF THE WEEK. You don't have to jump off a building to be a  hero! (shh, don't tell the Easter Seals team.)
Tell us your stories of support for the communities where you live and build. HAVAN will share your story in Ron's weekly MMB, post to the website, and share in social. We believe good efforts deserve to be shared! All contributions count, big and small. Contact Dawn@havan.ca with the details.
