Wheels of Justice Kicks Off Ninth Year in Courage Classic

WOJThe DBA and CBA sponsored Wheels of Justice Cycling Team hosted their kick-off event on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at the Denver Post building. The team, comprised of attorneys and non-attorneys who participate in the Courage Classic, gathered to celebrate the start of training and fundraising for the three-day, 157-mile cycling tour through the Rockies benefits Children’s Hospital Colorado.  In the past eight years, the Wheels of Justice has raised just under $2 million for Children’s Hospital Colorado, directing its funds to the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.

More than 70 people were in attendance and speakers included team captain Heather Leja, Dr. Tom Smith, and his former Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) patient Michaela Hennig who told her story. When she was 3, Michaela was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma on her leg and underwent more than a year of aggressive chemo, radiation, and surgery.  Today, Michaela is an active and poised 26-year-old who is getting ready to climb her first fourteener.  She said that she’s grateful not just for the terrific medical care but also for the way the CCBD allowed her to “just be a kid” through all of the challenges. Because of the incredibly positive spirit and great care at the CCBD, most of her memories of that time are very positive.
