I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients. Children's Hospital Colorado was there for me and now I want to support Children's to be there for others.
When I was 20 months old, I was diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor. I don't remember much but I know that I got great care at Children's. I had to have neurosurgery and the doctors and nurses did everything they could to make sure that I got better. I am 11 years old now and I ski, fence and rock climb. I am doing great- thanks to Children's Hospital Colorado.
I will not be the last child to face a life-threatening illness and my family will not be the last to navigate a frightening diagnosis.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children. This will be my second tour to raise money for Children's Colorado patients. Please help me to support kids, like myself, to live healthier lives.
