I'm riding the Courage Classic for the 10th time this year as part of team CLIMB FOR COOP! This isn't just any cycling team...we are the parents, siblings, friends and loved ones of children who have bravely fought cancer and other childhood diseases, and we are here to celebrate life in their honor. CLIMB FOR COOP is a diverse and growing team of all ability levels.
I'm riding for the kids of friends who have had to rely on Children's Hospital to try and help the kids most in need -- this crowd comes together with support like no other, whether it be donations, home-cooked meals, homework help for siblings, household chores, and most importanly, love!
CLIMB FOR COOP aims to recruit bunches of teammates and raise $50,000 for the Children's Hospital Courage Classic (July 20-21). It's a gorgeous, well-supported ride with widely varying route lengths -- there is something for everyone, including the kids. It is an amazing weekend, filled with fun and meaning. And if you are unable to join the ride this year, please join the team as Virtual Rider.
