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.
Our Courage Classic fundraising team has launched in support of the Burn Camps Program! S’more Courage is a group of dedicated volunteers raising money by hitting the road for two days of cycling over picturesque Rocky Mountain passes. This year’s tour has something for everyone with seven route options from virtual to 81 miles through the beautiful Rocky Mountains, starting and ending in Copper Mountain. Whether you ride, fundraise, donate, volunteer, or sponsor the Courage Classic, your support helps provide lifesaving care for children at the region’s only nonprofit pediatric hospital.
Please visit our team page and click on “Join Team” or “Donate Now.” We are looking for S’more riders and donations! The Courage Classic returns to Copper Mountain for a two-day ride, July 15-16, 2023. Our goal is to raise $25,000 in 2023. 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.

- West Metro Family Fire Muster

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.
