We fundraise for Children's in memory of our son, Alex. At six weeks old, Alex was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (Type 1) while in the NICU at Children's Colorado. After discharge he was assigned to be followed by their Muscle Clinic. Then just before he turned 5 months old, Alex was admitted to the PICU for respiratory failure. Over the time that Alex was at Children's each and every provider offered great care as well as immense love and compassion to our entire family.

On behalf of Alex, who became our angel in the stars on April 12, 2009, thank you for your support and generosity. And, we hope you will consider joining us for a virtual ride this year!
