This morning, June 24 from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., RE/MAX Properties, Inc. agents climbed 2,700 stairs at the annual Climb for Courage stair climb race at the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Falcon Stadium to support Children’s Hospital Colorado kids and their families.

Race categories included elite, open and teams. RE/MAX Properties, Inc. agents and clients volunteered and formed an unstoppable team, committed to helping the children of our community. Awards will be given for top male/female overall, top youth (under 18) male/female, age group and top team. The event also included a shorter untimed Fun Wave around the lower portion of Falcon Stadium – perfect for kids and families

The Climb for Courage raises money to expand Children’s Hospital Colorado’s programs and services, bringing the community one step closer to building southern Colorado’s only comprehensive children’s hospital. The hospital’s presence will be transformative for kids and families, bringing world-class experts – who deliver miracles and inspire breakthroughs – to Colorado Springs’ backyard.

Building a hospital that specializes in the unique and delicate needs of children allows the region access to one of the top children’s hospitals in the country, providing care closer to home for the more than 225,000 kids throughout southern Colorado. “Colorado Springs residents will be so fortunate to have the Children’s Hospital Colorado here in our community. In the coming years, the hospital will assist thousands of children locally and it is an asset that we will be forever grateful for,” says Joe Clement, Broker Owner of RE/MAX Properties, Inc.

In 2016, more than 550 climbers tackled the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Falcon Stadium stairs. Last year’s event raised nearly $158,000 to help expand Children’s Hospital Colorado.
