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

Most positions require a commitment for the full tour. We also have one-day opportunities including on-course marshals and aid station hosts (group opportunity).

Volunteer positions are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We will place you based on your qualifications and required experience. Due to the nature of the event, most volunteers must be 18 years of age. Please reach out if you have questions about volunteering as a minor.  

All positions require transportation to Copper Mountain and the surrounding counties. Most volunteer jobs are not within walking distance of the Start/Finish line. 

Lodging

Multi-day positions include lodging. If you are assigned to a multi-day position, we will reach out with information to book your lodging for the weekend. Room size, location and room type cannot be guaranteed, and is only available for confirmed volunteers. 

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. 

While our volunteers are not required to fundraise, they are more than welcome to! 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!
