Why I Ride
As we know 2020 has been nothing but unusual. For the reasons we all know the Courage Classic will be much different for my 14th year as a member of the Wheels of Justice bicycling team. Our mantra this year is "while Covid has stopped a lot of things in life, pediatric cancer has not stopped." The money we raise directly benefits our pediatric cancer and blood disorders program at Children’s Hospital. My ride which was scheduled for July 17 will now be virtual. This will have a huge impact on the money raised leaving the foundation scrambling to figure out how to fund the continued problem of pediatric cancer. While I won't be riding the normal Courage Classic route on these days rest assured I will run or ride a mountain just because.....that's what I do.
As we are hoping to be back to normal this year I don't want to ignore the need for this year. I also want to be sensitive to everyone's different situation they are possibly finding themselves in at this time. If you can still support the cause your donation will be GREATLY appreciated. If you can't help at this time I understand and want you to know I hope you, and all of us, come out of the other side of this pandemic time healthy, happy, and safe.
Many of you have been so generous in the past and it is almost too much to ask you to help out again. If you can support these kids, doctors, and great care takers in any way this year, we will be truly grateful. Know that every dollar counts. NO AMOUNT is too small. Donate your Starbuck’s drink you were going to buy and that $5 will had up to thousands….just from my contacts alone.
