Volunteer at the Courage Classic

Join the Courage Classic community for an unforgettable weekend benefiting Children's Colorado patients and families.

Join us for tour weekend

There are many ways to support the Courage Classic as a volunteer. Whether you welcome riders at registration, work an aid station, or provide encouragement and more cowbell as an on-course marshal, YOU make a difference.

You must be 18 years or older to volunteer. Most positions require a commitment for the full tour. We also have one-day opportunities including on-course marshals and registration crew.

Volunteer positions fill up on a first-come, first-served basis. We will place you based on your qualifications and required experience.

Lodging

Full tour positions include lodging. If you are assigned to a full-tour position, we will reach out with information to book your lodging for the weekend. One-day positions do not include lodging, but we have an option for you to reserve your own room at a discounted rate.

Fundraise for kids

Fundraising is a great way to make a difference for Children’s Colorado patients and families. It’s also an easy way for your friends and family to make a donation on your behalf to support the amazing work you do.

Once you apply to be a volunteer, you will be prompted to log in to the Participant Center to start fundraising! Here are helpful tips to get started. We also encourage you to join the Courage Classic Facebook group to connect with other supporters, share fundraising tips and ideas, and fuel the Courage Classic spirit!
