Well, Dan, you might say, that is a pretty strange and precise number for your 2017 fundraising goal, isn't it?
Not at all.
It's hard to believe, but over the past eight years of amazing Courage Classic rides, with thanks to my friends, family and colleagues, I have raised a total of $213,716.10 for Children's Hospital Colorado. If I can raise that number- $36,283.90- this year, we will have together donated a quarter of a million dollars to support this wonderful hospital and it's programs for children and families in need. it's a bit more than I have ever raised in one year, but I know we can do it -thanks to your generosity.
I am so proud to work here at Children's. The almost 10,000 faculty and staff here are a group of incredibly talented, dedicated, hard working professionals who do their best every day to serve our patients and families. Thank you for helping me turn my pedal turns and wheel spins into support for their programs.
I expect to ride ~150 miles the weeekend of July 22-23 and would be, as always so grateful for your contribution to my ride. You know what to do- click on the "donate now" button and please give generously to this incredible event. All contributions are fully tax-deductible. The children of Colorado, the mountain states and beyond appreciate your support, and so do I. Thank you.
Let's do this. $250,000 here we come.
