Hathaway launched Hath's Heroes in 2019 to provide tickets to Capitals games to local first responders. Postgame, Hathaway meets the ticket recipients and gives them a tour of the Capitals locker room. In addition to donating tickets, Hathaway visits local fire and police stations throughout the season and spends time with first responders.
Hathaway's great-grandfather, Garnet Mcelroy, was a firefighter in Winnipeg, and his experiences inspired Hathaway to launch Hath's Heroes.
