I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients like Jax.
Shortly after birth, Jax was diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), which is a type of congenital heart defect where the left side of the heart does not form correctly. His recent third heart surgery went very well and is allowing Jax to live an ordinary life. He loves tractors, cows, and to run and jump. In many ways he is a fearless ball of energy.
Jax 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 an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children like Jax. Please consider supporting Children's Hospital Colorado through this ride so more children like Jax receive the care they need.
