On Sunday, April 30, 2017, the first annual LOLLIPOP Superhero Walk was held at The Grove in Los Angeles. Hundreds of superheroes showed up in full force to walk with us in the Fairfax District to help raise awareness and funding for Lollipop Theater Network’s in-hospital programming. After the walk, guests enjoyed food, smoothies, music, giant games, cupcake decorating and a superhero photo booth!
The event – presented by 20th Century Fox and 21st Century Fox – was even attended by our very own celebrity superheroes – Candace Cameron Bure, Billy Bush, Yvette Nicole Brown, Katie Lowes, Adam Shapiro, Monique Coleman, Jake Allyn, Joel Courtney, Monty Geer, Melissa Carcache and more! Additional sponsors included Maya Cinemas, RealD, Texas Instruments and in-kind sponsors Polite in Public, The Bake Shoppe Camp, Prestige Princesses and Voss Water.
“The LOLLIPOP Superhero Walk is one of my all-time favorite events! It celebrates the real life superheroes who walk among us – the pediatric patients we serve – along with their moms, dads, siblings, grandparents and friends. We at LOLLIPOP put on our capes and masks and take to the streets of LA to honor and celebrate their strength and love.”
“LOLLIPOP is an organization that brings smiles to seriously ill children, and today’s Superhero Walk is a wonderful event that empowers us all to become superheroes – fighting for the cause! We couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this.”

“From the moment we woke up and donned our superhero costumes (PJ Masks!) to the pre-walk stretching and snacks, to the superhero surprise landings during the walk itself, to the giant games and healthy post-race snacks and give-aways, our family of four was utterly delighted. The LOLLIPOP Superhero Walk is a great way to spend quality time with your little ones while teaching them the value of giving back and maintaining a mindset of gratitude for every day that we enjoy good health. I know we’ll have memories of this special day for years to come, and we can’t wait to do the next walk together.”
“The LOLLIPOP Superhero Walk was magical. My daughters loved meeting Candace Cameron Bure and Monique Coleman…and, of course, Cat Woman!!!”
