O Heroes works closely with the Boys and Girls Club of the Emerald Valley. Click here to read more.
The student-athletes at the University of Oregon are committed to giving back and serving the Eugene/Springfield community. Through the O Heroes program student-athletes consistently complete up to 4,000 hours of service per year.
The focus of the O Heroes is concentrated in three key initiatives: Education, Service, and Health. Student-Athletes voluntarily fulfill many service requests from the community. However, priority will be given to programs that meet the objectives of O Heroes, are in Lane County, and/or take place on a "Day of Service".
If your school or organization would like to request the service of a student-athlete, please fill out the Online Appearance Request Form. Please note the following:
- Submitting a form does not guarantee the request will be fulfilled.
- Requests must be received at least two weeks prior to the date of activity.
- Requests for specific student-athletes or teams are not guaranteed.
- Please read the NCAA Guidelines/Restrictions prior to submitting an appearance request.
