2022 Costume Contest

Holidays can be a challenge for HPE parents, am I right?  There are so many uncertainties that we face especially at Halloween:

  • What costume?
  • How do we incorporate the wheelchair into the costume?
  • How do we get to the front door if there are steps?
  • My child has a g-tube, so what do we do with all of this candy?
  • We won’t spend this Halloween in the hospital again, will we?

Even with the challenges, we push forward, we make plans, and we create great memories with our children. And sometimes, our kids end up with the best costumes in the neighborhood!

To celebrate our special children, we invite you to share a photo of your child in costume and participate in our annual fundraising contest!  We all know too well that life can be unpredictable, so you may submit a photo of your child in costume from this current year or a past year.

New this year, there are two prize categories—(1) individual costume and (2) family or group costumes.

To enter the costume contest or to learn more, visit https://www.gogophotocontest.com/familiesforhope but don’t delay because the deadline to enter is Tuesday, November 2 at 11:59:59 pm ET.

Voting will begin on Wednesday, November 3 at 12:00:00 am ET.  Campaign for your favorite photo by sharing a link on Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. By collecting donation votes ($1 per vote), you’ll be supporting Families for HoPE in its effort to bring HoPE to HPE families.

The contest voting deadline is on Giving Tuesday–Tuesday, November 29 at 11:59:59 pm ET.

Good luck!
