I ride to give support and hope to patients of the Children's Hospital Colorado.
The Durango Derailers was started in 2012 to provide assistance with lodging and transportation for patients and families from SW Colorado as they travel to Children's Hospital for care. From the rural community of Durango and the surrounding area, many patients need to travel over 6 hours to get the medical treatment they need. I ride to try to take just a little bit of stress off the logistics getting to and from, so these parents can be there for their kids who need them more than ever.
These kids fight big battles every day. The Iron Horse is an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children.
