This unique time places significant responsibilities and decisions in our hands. All children matter, and their well-being is at the heart of every decision we make. Therefore, we have made the decision to postpone the Mascot Games until 2023 with the hopes that this unique time will have changed for the better and we will once again be able to gather by the thousands and watch the antics of our beloved Mascots as they perform for the enjoyment of all.
We will offer the Mascot Games Fun Run virtual event July 16-23
Please check back for more details or email

From the entire New Hope family, we hope you and your family remain safe and healthy.

Mascot Games

The Mascot Games feature approximately 30 mascots from sports teams across the country competing in a variety of games.

More than 18,000 fans enjoy thrilling and pulse-pounding competition, as mascots from MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA and the Arena Football League battle through gladiator themed games, to see who are the true champions of the mascot world.

Mascot Games Fun Run

The Mascot Games Virtual 5K Fun Run is the chance for families, coworkers and neighbors to come together with a dual purpose – to support New Hope for Kids and to stay connected with the Mascots that you know and love.

Strap on your walking or running shoes, gather your friends and family, and create a route in your area to show your Mascot spirit.

All proceeds benefit:

New Hope for Kids, which provides support to children and families grieving the death of a loved one and to grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses in Central Florida.
