Support our Dare to Ride Team! 2020 VIRTUAL Courage Classic on July 18-19

Support Global Down Syndrome Foundation’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.

Despite the change in format, our team’s commitment to the mission of the Sie Center remains the same – To provide the best clinical care and therapeutic intervention to children with Down syndrome and up-to-date information on Down syndrome to parents, physicians, and the community. Please consider supporting our Dare to Ride Team in one or more of the following ways:

    1. Join our Virtual Team

  • Our Dare to Ride Team consists of self-advocates, family members, and community supporters who are passionate about supporting medical care for children with Down syndrome.
  • Fueled by their network of supporters, each rider contributes to our team goal of $50,000 through online peer-to-peer fundraising. There is no fundraising minimum for 2020.
  • This year’s tour format broadens the possibilities of participation – You can ride, spin, run, hike, walk, and more while social distancing outside or staying in, all to support the Sie Center! Register today!
