Some visits to pediatric specialists are moments of crisis and others are planned consults or follow-ups, but they are often stressful times away from home and work often filled with many questions and uncertainty. The Durango Derailers Patient Assistance Fund (housed both at Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation and locally at the Community Foundation serving SW Colorado) exists to support and serve our community families during these times with travel assistance in the form of gas and lodging allotments. We were established in 2007 providing funds for those receiving care at Children's Hospital Colorado. As of the fall of 2022 with continued generous donations, sponsor support, rider fundraising and successful team events, we are proud to share that we have expanded our missionto include travel assistance to any pediatric hospital or specialty location outside of SW Colorado.
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who makes this possible! The Corporate Sponsors, The Donors, The Riders and the Dancers. 2022 TOTAL DONATIONS came in at $223,749! You all made this happen for our kids!
