I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients like Rowen.
Rowen's story is best told by his mother - "Rowan James was diagnosed with HRHS at 27weeks in utero. He was born on July 4th, 2019 at 6:50pm. He had his first open heart surgery at 5 days old. We were inpatient at Childrens for 28days. We were home for a week then readmitted for another week due to an infection in his incision. We enjoyed a wonderful 3 months at home before his next open heart. He then had fluid build up around his lungs that kept him at the hospital for two and half months. While he was there we had two cathlabs preformed, two MRIs and a bacterial infection in his blood. They were cautious about sending him home but he has been thriving! The fluid is almost gone, oxygen is less by the week and medications are few now a days. He enjoys sitting up and playing with his toys, sweet potatoes, and playing with his Daddy"
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children.
