This is the first annual Courage Classic for the School Health Team at Children's Hospital Colorado.
Our team of 40 nurses work in the communities we serve to provide expert school nursing services to 349 sites touching 77,399 children's lives. Our team coordinates care to keep children healthy, safe, in school, and ready to learn!
We are passionate about supporting Children's Hospital Colorado and ride to give hope to patients like Chase.
Chase was born 2 months early in full cardiac arrest and spent nearly 3 months in the Children’s Hospital Colorado NICU. He continues to face challenges ranging from respiratory issues to partial blindness.
Chase asked his mom, Laura, if he could ride with her in the Courage Classic Bicycle Tour. Given his medical challenges, this was no small feat, but Chase was determined to learn to ride a bike. After a lot of hard work (and falls), Chase rode with Laura's Durango Derailers Team of family and friends across the Courage Classic finish line -- a true testament to his courage and strength against all odds.
Chase will not be the last child to face a life-threatening illness, and his family will not be the last to navigate a frightening diagnosis.
Join us to support healthier futures for kids.
