We have just shy of one month to train and fundraise for this great cause!
The bike training has begun during the week by riding 2+ hours after work. I am meeting others on the bike trail who are also preparing for the Courage Classic - another motivator!
The fundraising is in full swing as well! With your generous gifts, we are 68% of the way there! I am thrilled and excited to have you by my side on this!
Here is one example of why I choose to ride in the Courage Classic: Chase.
Chase was born 2 months early in full cardiac arrest and spent nearly 3 months in the Children’s Hospital Colorado NICU. He continues to face challenges ranging from respiratory issues to partial blindness.
Chase asked his mom, Laura, if he could ride with her in the Courage Classic Bicycle Tour. Given his medical challenges, this was no small feat, but Chase was determined to learn to ride a bike. After a lot of hard work (and falls), Chase rode with Laura's Durango Derailers Team of family and friends across the Courage Classic finish line -- a true testament to his courage and strength against all odds.
Chase will not be the last child to face a life-threatening illness, and his family will not be the last to navigate a frightening diagnosis.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children.
