I joined the Durango Derailers Cycling Team three years ago as a way of giving back to my community and helping kiddos (and their families) in need. The reality is that SW Colorado and NW New Mexico have limited options for specialty care for our young people. Our cycling team is dedicated to raising money in order to assist families with transportation and lodging expenses associated with getting our kiddos the help they need at Children’s Hospital in Denver. While Denver is a considerable distance from this region, this transportation funding is at least something that can help ease these stressful situations for our local families and friends.
Our team goal is $100k, which will ensure that we can help provide funding for families throughout the year; of that, my goal is only a mere $2k. If 100 of my friends and family donated $20 each, I can easily make that goal.
I ride because so many people I know in this area have needed to use these services; it’s real, and it absolutely impacts the people in this region. Let’s work together to make this a better experience for families in this area.
Thank you in advance!!
