Cardiac Climbers Team
Welcome to the Cardiac Climbers’ website. We are riding in the 2019 Courage Classic Tour to raise money for the Heart Institute at Children’s Hospital Colorado to support projects that benefit patient care and leading research programs directly. We are passionate about providing exceptional cardiology care for our patients which is why for us this is personal. Each rider raises funds in honor of one of our patients.

Why we ride
For us, it’s personal
Our theme “It’s personal” means that each rider on our team dedicates their ride to a patient that has been or is being treated at the Heart Institute.
We know that every patient we treat has family and friends that are also affected by their illness, so we honor them each individually.
