Hello! I am Father John Nepil, a priest for the archdiocese of Denver. This is my second year riding the courage classic and I am excited and honored to be riding it for my godson Joseph Gallik. I baptized him at 2 days old in his hospital room and 2 days later he had his first open heart surgery. One stent procedure and 2 heart catheterizations later, Joseph is now almost five and will be facing his 2nd open heart surgery in June. He and his family have done awesome throughout all the challenges they have faced during his 5 years of life.
I am grateful to ride in honor of Joseph and the Galliks and to support the future families that will face similar circumstances. Thanks so much for your support!
