Over the past seven years, International CCHS Day has generated a surge of awareness and advocacy for our orphan disease. This year, we are TURNING THE TIDE to uncover greater ingenuity, research and treatment options. In anticipation of our 2022 CCHS Network Family Conference in Newport Beach, California, we invite our community of families and supporters to help give CCHS its day in the sun on November 13th, 2021.
When energy is needed at a sporting event, fans will often start “the wave”. It soon travels around the stadium, unifying a group of people with a shared mission. That is what we are going to do this CCHS Day, except around the globe! We are asking our community to take a video of you/your family doing the wave and post it to your social media accounts along with the hashtags #jointhewaveforcchs and #cchsday2021. You can challenge friends to participate by tagging them in your posts.

Sales end on October 18, 2021 for delivery by November 10, 2021.
The easiest way to make a difference this CCHS Day is to create a Facebook Fundraiser on your personal page. You can share your message with family and friends while providing a convenient way for the to donate.
