I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients like Zeke.
Zeke is 9 months old and by far the sweetest, calmest baby I have met. He is a miracle baby, he has very complex heart disease, he spent three and a half weeks on ECMO after his first open heart surgery and was in multi-organ failure. He has arrested three times, has been through countless surgeries and procedures.. He has spent more of his life in the hospital than at home, and he is currently was until recently in the hospital waiting for a heart transplant. Zeke finally had his heart transplant recently and is now home!!!!!
Through all of this Zeke has managed to make the entire cardiac floor fall in love with his cute little face and precious smile.
Zeke will not be the last child to face a life-threatening illness, and his family will not be the last to navigate a frightening diagnosis.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children.
