Wheels of Justice 2021 - Our 16th Year!
We are the largest team riding annually in the Courage Classic, a challenging 1-day bicycle tour, covering 80 miles over several mountain passes and a fundraiser benefiting Children's Hospital Colorado.
This year our team will honor the memory of Koby Gruenwald, due to COVID-19 we weren't able to celebrate them in 2020 and have chosen to honor his family and memory again this year.
Who we are
For thirty years Children’s Hospital Colorado has hosted the Courage Classic. This two-day bike ride in beautiful Copper Mountain attracts more than 2,000 riders each summer. Wheels of Justice is the cycling team devoted to raising funds and awareness for pediatric cancer. All proceeds raised by Wheels of Justice go straight to the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
The 2019, Wheels of Justice team broke all the rules, reaching new highs and setting multiplee records. We raised over $529,000 in just one year. This is truly remarkable, and has never been done before. Our team inspired almost 4,000 individual donors this year, and our all-star MVP player was Martha Riedel, raising $132,000. As a team of #PartnersAgainstCancer we have raised over $4.3Million (lifetime), and are excited for our 15th season. We hope you will join us. Our goal for 2020 is…. $1,000,000!. We believe with your help, we can reach this dream destination.
As this past season came to a close, we looked back on how we got to where we are today. The patients and the families drive every aspect of our success. We COULD NOT come close to the difference we are making at Children’s Hospital Colorado if it weren’t for each family giving us a glimpse into their lives and their stories.
This year, we 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. He battled brain cancer for nearly two years before discontinuing treatment.
As a young man, Koby was very outgoing and active. He loved cycling, baseball, music, and dancing; even riding with Wheels of Justice in the Courage Classic in July of 2017. Surrounded by his family, his twin siblings, Micah and Hannah rode the Courage Classic with Koby. We were so grateful to have just a few days with this fun-loving boy and his family. Passionate for the cause, Micah is dedicating his Bar Mitzvah to his ride in 2020 as well as competing on a local cycling team.
WOJ is more than just a team, we are a collection of families, dedicated beyond measure to curing cancer. We offer training rides, great apparel, kick-off parties, first year mentors and so much more!
