We invite you to remember someone special during Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care’s 37th annual Trees of Life Tree Lighting Ceremony. During the winter holiday season, the trees surrounding the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum will be lit up for the Trees of Life celebration in memory of thousands of loved ones. This long-standing community tradition also pays tribute to our military and first responders by illuminating a special red, white and blue tree in their honor.

When you arrive, check-in at one of our volunteer tables, located near the steps, if you would like to provide your loved ones’ names to our volunteers so that they may be read aloud in remembrance during the ceremony.
