Ride in the Courage Classic

Join your community to create a better world for children, dollar by dollar, pedal by pedal, one mountain pass at a time.

Why ride?

You have the opportunity to conquer mountains, help transform children’s health and be a part of raising millions. All for Children’s Hospital Colorado patients. All experience levels are welcome. You can help create a better world for children, dollar by dollar, pedal by pedal, one mountain pass at a time.

Something for everyone

Join us for a two-day tour, July 16-17, 2022, in Copper Mountain with three fully supported routes each day for all rider levels and abilities, and endless celebrations. Be a part of the Courage Classic excitement and community this summer while making a difference for the kids and families who depend on Children’s Colorado for care.

We hope to see everyone in Copper this year and are working closely with the State of Colorado, CDPHE and so many others to create a safe and fun 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 the Courage Classic comeback with our community!

It really is a life-changing time. You can’t really explain how magical the weekend is, you just need to experience it for yourself.

Your support is changing 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 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.

You make stories of hope and healing possible
