Thank you for visiting my Courage Classic page.
I have been participating in donation rides for over 10 years. I started in 2008 riding with a good friend after his transplant for leukemia in the Scenic Shore 150 in Milwaukee, WI. Ted and I are inseparable, in that I was his bone marrow donor. We have joined rides from Milwaukee to Seattle, now Colorado. Ted is again riding this year in the Scenic Shore 150 (he is kind of a "big deal" for the ride), and on that exact weekend, I am riding in the Courage Classic in Colorado to support Children’s Hospital .
Many patients and families I have met in Colorado Springs are already endearing themselves to me. The clinical team here is unsurpassed in their care provided. The Courage Classic is just another small piece of the larger team, held to provide support funding.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children.
