Arc Thrift Classics (formerly Jelly Belly for Kids)


We're riding again for "Kids in Need" and are a spirited, dedicated team of University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center students, faculty, staff & friends who care greatly about children. If we raise $50,000 again your donations will support the Neuroscience Institute at Children's Hospital featuring Child Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Developmental Pediatrics.


We're riding for children with brain cancer, developmental disabilities of all kinds, epilepsy, stroke and many more disorders of the nervous system that present challenges for them.


This is our 10th year together for many of us; we began as Team AHEC at the inspiration of Dr. Jack Westfall, then were Jelly Belly for Kids & now are the "ARC Thrift Classics" in recognition of their wonderful continued support of our team and in recognition of all they do for people with disabilities.  Our generous sponsors (Arc Thrift, CereScan, DoudBTS, Cateye, Clifbar, Evergreen Bicycle Outfitters and many others) make it possible for us to enlist our medical center students to experience great teamwork working together that will follow them through their careers as health care providers, many at our Children's Hospital Colorado which is one of the finest in our nation.


So come ride with us, but if not please donate to the rider of your choice or our team in general.  We'd love your support and no gift is too small......or too large!


Many thanks. Team Captains  Eric Larson, James Simpson and John Sladek
