We ride to give hope to Children’s Hospital Colorado patients like Piper.
Piper was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma – a form of cancer that was growing as a soft tumor in her spine. Today, after many rounds of chemotherapy and radiation at Children’s Hospital Colorado, the creative, big-hearted elementary schooler is cancer free. Piper's family says they made it through a lot of tough days with help and support from every area of the hospital.
We are exciteing to announce, this year Big Blue Swim School is aligning with the ARCH program at Children's Hospital.
ARCH represents the Rehabilitation &Therapy service line at Children’s Hospital Colorado, and raises money to continue expanding and providing communityrecreation programs and opportunities for the ARCH (Adaptive Recreation for Childhood Health) program. We’re ridingin honor the of the kids who have received care within the rehab service line, and are now active and recreating in thecommunity in the adaptive sports program. Through ARCH, children can continue developing their skills and furtherbuild upon their abilities.
Where does the money go?
Each rider must fundraise a minimum amount in order to ride. This ensures that we can help support the children
involved in ARCH at Children’s Colorado. The money that is raised will be used to continue providing adaptive recreation
opportunities and expanding programs throughout the Rehabilitation service line at Children’s Colorado. The money is
also used to provide education, equipment, resources, and financial support to any children and their families who are
interested in participating in ARCH.
The Courage Classic is an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for kids like Piper.
Join us to support healthier futures for kids.
