The CHARGE For Connor Organization
CHARGE for Connor is a nonprofit organization formed in 2014 as a way to remember Connor Logsdon and carry on his legacy.
January Memorial Fundraiser
The month of January comes with resolutions, goals, and ambitions for the new year. Unfortunately, January also comes with the heaviness of our last days with Connor and the date of his angelversary when he left us here on Earth. In an effort to help others and create something positive from our pain, the CHARGE for Connor Organization hosts an Online Memorial Fundraiser each January. The fundraiser launches on January 5th and continues through January 17th.
Connor was born on September 29, 2012 and gained his angel wings on January 10, 2014. Connor was born with a rare and complex genetic syndrome called CHARGE syndrome. This syndrome is caused by a mutation of a regulatory gene which can result in extensive medical and physical issues.

The name “CHARGE syndrome” was initially (1981) a clever acronym used to describe a cluster of symptoms noted in a number of children. The letters in CHARGE stand for: Coloboma of the eye, Heart defects, Atresia of the choanae, Retardation of growth and/or development, Genital and/or urinary abnormalities, and Ear abnormalities and deafness. Although those specific features are no longer the major features used in making a diagnosis of CHARGE syndrome the name remains the same. Individuals with CHARGE Syndrome are known for their determination and charismatic personalities.
Our board and our officers share our passion and help us turn our goals into realities.
