Our family is excited to announce that we are riding the COURAGE CLASSIC BIKE TOUR in JULY 2021 ~ it will be our 3rd year!
As many of you know, at 20 weeks gestation - I found out I was having a baby boy with Spina Bifida. My son, Reed experiences on a daily basis the obstacles that go with having SB. He has had to learn to live with mulitple conditions such as hydrocephalus, diminished sensation and paralysis in his legs make walking nearly impossible, bladder and bowel complications, learning disabilities, latex allergy as well as social issues. INSPITE OF ALL THAT, Reed has brought blessings and taught an abundance of life's lessons to all who know him. He is the most fun-loving, all accepting, adventurous, honest, creative, sensitive boy I know!
In his 16 years of life, Reed has had 18 surgeries all through the Childrens Hospital of Colorado - the most challenging being bladder reconstruction, shunt revisions and Spinal Fusion.
I am thrilled to be participating in the COURAGE CLASSIC with the Courage from the Springs Team again this year and begin training on our tandem bike with Reed. Look for us out on the roads in Colorado Springs as we gear up to have another experience - we will be strengthening our MIND, BODY and SPIRIT together... this time we added a motor to his bike so we can go further, faster!
What a great way to raise much needed funding to benefit Children's Colorado and Southern Colorado’s only comprehensive children’s hospital, which opened the Summer of 2019. Together, we can step up for kids like Reed who deserve world-class healthcare closer to home!
WILL YOU PLEASE JOIN US... IN PERSON OR VIRTUALLY? VOLUNTEER? or DONATE TO OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL?
Thank you! ~Sara #Ride4Reed
