Please join me in celebrating the lives of 25 very special young individuals who are heroes in the most profound way.
This Sunday, September 13, we will unveil 25 portraits of children and teens who were selected by hospitals, community specialists, and the staff at CCA for their extraordinary spirits despite facing fragile medical conditions. The wall will be unveiled at 12:00 Noon in front of the World Trade Center at 121 SW Salmon in Portland, Oregon. All afternoon long there will be rockin’ music, games, face painting, tempting foods and an array of treasures to be found.
You, your whole family, friends and neighbors are welcome to join us at any point, and the energy is light and welcoming. Our purpose is to celebrate these lives!
At 4pm, the Portland streets around the World Trade Center will be closed, and music will be played as each child releases a homing dove into the sky. It is a poignant moment for everyone, and a reminder of how important it is to stop and reflect upon what is most important to us.
A heartfelt thank you to Pro Photo Supply for donating the printing of these images, and to DigiCraft for mounting all of them.
