Something for everyone

We’re excited to announce a one-day, in-person event as well as an exciting virtual experience! The tour will be hosted on Saturday, July 17, in Copper Mountain and offer three fully supported routes for all rider levels and abilities. We are hopeful to see everyone in person this year and are working closely with the State of Colorado, CDPHE and so many others to create a safe and amazing experience for all.

Courage Classic is always such a special time for patients, families, caregivers and supporters of Children’s Colorado to come together. We look forward to continuing this tradition and celebrating with you, our community!

Fundraising minimum

To be eligible to ride in this year’s in-person event, riders must reach their fundraising minimum by June 1. Adults (16 and older) are required to raise $500. Child riders are asked to raise $125. If our rider capacity is capped due to State of Colorado COVID-19 guidelines, in-person invitations will be issued based on the date/time fundraising minimums are met. The earlier the minimum is met, the earlier you may receive an invitation. Incentive to fundraise early!

When you ride, you change the future of child health

Children’s Hospital Colorado sees more, treats more and heals more children than any hospital in our seven-state region. As a nonprofit, our world-class patient care, research, and advocacy are fueled by generous donors.

Courage Classic riders join a community of riders who challenge themselves physically, mentally, and by fundraising to support our mission: To eradicate childhood disease and create healthier and safer communities so that, one day, children will no longer need us.

Earn fundraising recognition badges along the way based on number of years ridden, and cumulative and current year fundraising.
