This year will be my eighth year riding Courage. I participate on a team called Wheels of Justice (which was started by lawyers). I made riding the Courage Classic a goal many years ago after hearing about it from a Chaplain at Children’s Hospital who enthusiastically told me about his experience training for Courage, facing the challenges of the ride, and feeling inspired by the other riders, including doctors, past patients of Children’s, and family members riding in memory of their little ones.
I ride the Courage Classic for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders and those who have endured more in their childhood years than many of us face in a lifetime. I also ride for those kids’ parents and family members, who don’t like to ask for help but who have required a community of support to get through the day-to-day realities of feeding tubes, seizures, chemo treatments, doctor visits, and the list goes on.
Your donations to the Courage Classic make treatments and cures possible.
