I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients like Chase.
Chase was born 2 months early in full cardiac arrest and spent nearly 3 months in the Children’s Hospital Colorado NICU. He continues to face challenges ranging from respiratory issues to partial blindness.
Chase asked his mom, Laura, if he could ride with her in the Courage Classic Bicycle Tour. Given his medical challenges, this was no small feat, but Chase was determined to learn to ride a bike. After a lot of hard work (and falls), Chase rode with Laura's Durango Derailers Team of family and friends across the Courage Classic finish line -- a true testament to his courage and strength against all odds.
Working at Children's Hospital in the Cancer Department has been a very eye-opening, humbling experience. I see some strong families come through doing the best they can for their kids. I'm hoping to raise $500 for my department to support the work of the fellows and our Wellness Program. Thanks for considering!
