Copper Mountain, COLO. —July 2, 2014—Cyclists participating in the Children’s Hospital Colorado’s signature event, Courage Classic, will start pedaling throughout Summit County and around Copper Mountain Resort in less than one month, July 19–21. Celebrating its 25th milestone, the three mountain pass fundraising tour depends on the generous support of donors, sponsors and volunteers for its success, and the community is encouraged to get involved.


The funds raised through the Courage Classic bicycle tour go directly to meeting hospital’s areas of greatest need such as purchasing new medical equipment, supporting new child health research and maintaining the Hospital Sports Program for kids with disabilities. Donors can see their dollars at work through Courage Classic teams like Team Courage, which is comprised largely of former and current Children’s Colorado patients beating the odds.


Since its inception in 1989, and thanks to thousands of participants and supporters, the Courage Classic has raised more than $32 million for Children’s Colorado. To celebrate the 25th tour, the fundraising goal is bigger than ever - $2.8 million! Each rider is asked to contribute to the monumental goal by joining the UP25 campaign, increasing their personal fundraising 25 percent over last year or 25 percent over the minimum for new riders.
