2020 VIRTUAL Courage Classic

Support GLOBAL’s Dare to Ride Team for the 2020 Courage Classic VIRTUAL bike tour on July 18-19! Courage Classic is an annual fundraiser for Children’s Hospital Colorado, and GLOBAL’s Dare to Ride Team designates its funds to the Anna and John J. Sie Center for Down Syndrome at the hospital.

COVID-19 UPDATE: After careful consideration, Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation has decided to transition this year’s Courage Classic bicycle tour to a virtual celebration. While we were hopeful this year’s Courage Classic would take place as usual in Copper Mountain, we agree that this is the best option given the current public health landscape.

Please consider supporting our Dare to Ride Team in one or more of the following ways:
