Founded in 1990, the Courage Classic is the single largest event bringing people together to raise money for Children’s Colorado. Families are not only welcome but encouraged to join us for the weekend. In 2021, the Courage Classic raised more than $2.1 million for the patients and families who depend on Children’s Hospital Colorado for care.
Every year the Burn Camps Program provides the camp experience to 150 burn survivors for free. Born in 2021, S’more Courage is a dedicated team of volunteers riding to raise money for the Burn Camps Program. The team raised nearly $5,700 for the Burn Camps Program at the Courage Classic in 2021, our inaugural year. The Courage Classic returns to Copper Mountain for a two-day ride, July 16-17, 2022. Our goal is to raise $12,000 in 2022. Click here join us to reach our goal and support burn survivors on their journey to recovery.
We provide and participate in a wide range of events, from community and fundraising activities to conference and continuing education for medical professionals.

Our team participated in several community safety events including Mile High Hook and Ladder Fire Muster in Littleton, Health & Safety Day at Evergreen Fire & Rescue, and West Metro Family Fire Muster in Lakewood. Our injury prevention program has a long history of advocating to improve the health and safety of children.
We hosted community support activities for families healing from a burn injury at WinterSkate in Louisville in February and at the Denver Museum of Nature of Science in December. Our community events provide opportunities to connect families to other families, the fire service, and community partners.
Burn Awareness Week, observed the first full week in February, is a window of opportunity for organizations to mobilize burn, fire and life safety educators to unite in sharing a common burn awareness and prevention message in our community. In 2019 we had an incredibly successful burn awareness event at the Children’s Museum of Denver. We spent the day educating families with young children on burn injury prevention.
