I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients like Ava.
Ava was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome along with heterotaxy, transposition of the great arteries, pulmonary atresia and interrupted IVC. She had her first heart surgery at 2 days old, the second at 7 months and the third was just last August when she was 3. Despite all the time in the hospital, Ava is full of energy and such a fun, sweet little girl. She is truly a blessing to those she meets. Ava has been so blessed to be cared for by the Children's Hospital. She often plays "doctor" or "nurse" and is always practicing taking care of people so that when she gets big she can "help other people like her friends at the hospital do!"
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for these children.
