I am riding the Courage Classic with my Dad and the new team, Psyched to Climb this year. I'm doing it to help raise money and awareness for some of the things Children's Hospital does that no one knows about, specifcally, mental heath issues.
Children's Hosptial does amazing things like helping my brother who had a troubling, out-of-control rapid heart beat. They made my parents feel very comfortbale as they worked with Ian, performed surgery and fixed his heart.
But they also help kids dealing with mental health issues. No one talks about mental health issues and it carries an unfair stigma. I can tell you from personal experience that it's very real and places like Children's provide support for patients and for familes, including mine.
Please consider donating to the Children's Hospital foundation. You'll be supporting a great organization and an amazing event.
Thanks and looking forward to riding around Copper Mountain again this year - Isaac
