The BHEF will also present a special certificate to each person you have honored.
 
Tributes may be ordered at any time during the school year. However, submitting your order by December 2nd will ensure that you will receive Tribute cards before the Winter Recess. If you have any questions, please contact tributes@bhedfoundation.org .
 
On behalf of the Board of BHEF Trustees, we thank you for your continued support of our mission. A special thank you to our new sponsors: The Smith Chiropractic Foundation, Peak Medical and our longstanding partner Gabriele Fitness and Performance.
