It is our great honor to introduce Courage is… The Campaign to Transform Children’s Health

In the summer of 1897, a handful of dedicated medical staff – most of them volunteers – established a seasonal tent hospital in a Denver park to help babies and toddlers struggling with a simple, urgent challenge: breathing. No one knew it at the time, but those canvas tents, kerosene lanterns and visionary caregivers laid the foundation for one of the top-ranked children’s hospitals in America.

Almost 120 years later, Children’s Colorado stands at a critical juncture. With a world-renowned team of pediatric experts, state-of-the-art facilities and a proven track record of success, Children’s Colorado is uniquely positioned to make transformative changes for children.

Drawing on our unique strengths, one can only imagine the boundless possibilities the future holds and the transformative changes that can be realized with the help of our donors.

Competition for research dollars may be fierce, but our physician-scientists are working tirelessly to discover breakthroughs that could mean the difference between life and death for our young patients – and for children around the world. Furthermore, our clinical care is unparalleled in the region, as our pediatric experts continue to pioneer new therapies that are changing children’s lives for the better.

Standing shoulder to shoulder with you, the Courage is… Campaign will provide the critical funding needed to make great leaps forward. Our tradition of leadership through bold innovation positions us to achieve today what we could only dream of in the past. Together, we can reimagine pediatric medicine and transform children’s health.

The Courage is… Campaign offers donors the chance to make an extraordinary impact, here and now. We invite you to join us.
