I am supporting the Courage Classic and dedicating my ride to my son Bode.
Bode was born 2/28/19 with congenital heart disease and spent the first two months of his life at Children's Hospital Colorado where he underwent successful open heart surgery. If it wasn't for the amazing doctors, nurses and support staff at Children's Hospital Colorado, he would not be the happy and medically stable kid he is today.
Bode will not be the last child to face congenital heart disease and my family will not be the last to navigate a frightening diagnosis. I am riding the Courage Classic and joined the Cardiac Climbers team because this is personal. Let's raise as much money as we can as all of it goes to the Heart Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado to ensure no matter ones economic status, the absolute best care will be provided to those in need.
