Bereaved families will receive a special remembrance gift in honor of their loved one. If you register after October 14th, we cannot guarantee you will receive your gift in time for the event due to shipping times, etc. We will also be showing a remembrance video. If you'd like to submit a photo for the memorial slide show, please email no more than 2 high resolution photos with the name of your loved one and your name in the subject line to colorado@conqueringchd.org. If you purchase a ticket after October 14th, we cannot guarantee your loved one will be included in the slideshow, though every effort will be made to include them if possible.
