I finally signed up to be part of Children's Hospital Colorado's Courage Classic and I need your help.
After 10 years working for this amazing hospital, and missing the opportunity to participate in the Courage Classic because my bike is broken and I don't often drive into the mountains, I can't avoid it any longer. I need to actively support the cause that gives hope to so many patients at Children's Hospital Colorado including all of the patients for which I provide care, my own children, and this year's Wheels of Justice family ambassadors: my rabbi's family. I have joined the team to honor the memory of Koby Gruenwald.
On Dec. 2, 2017, the sanctuary of the Hebrew Educational Alliance was filled to overflow capacity for Koby Gruenwald’s Bar Mitzvah. Fifty days later, Jan. 21, 2018, the sanctuary filled once again, this time for Koby’s funeral. I had the honor of being present for both occasions and getting to know Koby enough to know why he is inspirational to SO many people, including me. He battled brain cancer for nearly two years before discontinuing treatment.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children. The funds raised by the Wheels of Justice go directly to the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders and help support so many of the programs and resources that make the care we provide top notch. I am proud to provide genetic counseling to help children and their families cope with and manage increased risks for cancer, but it might not be possible without the Courage Classic's funding.
Please help me fundraise for a cause that has such important personal and professional meaning to me by donating what you can on my page.
