The 2021 Children's Hospital Colorado's Courage Classic bike ride celebrated its 32nd year - riders so happy to be back on their bikes reunited and cheered to the finish line after the preceding virtual year!
Together in 2021, the event raised more than $2.1 million for the patients and families who depend on Children's Hospital Colorado.
The Durango Derailers Team has been around for 16 years and has grown from 6 riders to over 120. In 2012, the team raised over $58,000 and started a fund that specifically provides assistance with lodging and transportation for patients and families from SW Colorado as they travel to Children's Hospital for care. For the past 10 years (2012-2021), our team of riders has raised over $600,000 and we have been one of the top 10 fundraising teams for the event several years in a row!!
As a team, we come in all levels and experience of riding. We love the challenge and the inspiration of the ride.
