The Courage Classic invites cyclists to conquer mountains while raising money to help patients at nonprofit Children’s Hospital Colorado, where last year more than 300,000 patients were treated and more than 700 clinical trials are currently underway. This year’s event is a two-day tour, July 16-17, in Copper Mountain. Included are three fully supported routes each day for all rider levels. Routes range from 10 to 80 miles through the Rocky Mountains, starting and ending in Copper Mountain.
Distributing an average of 1.5 million meals a week to provide hunger relief to communities around the Front Range, the Food Bank of the Rockies aims to provide immediate food relief and achieve a more consistent solution to food scarcity.
