Sponsor Father Steve on his ride through the Rockies...
Ride the Rockies is back and once again our own Fr. Steve will be participating in the Ride the Rockies Colorado Bicycle Tour this June; an event he has been participating in since 1997. Ride the Rockies allows Fr. Steve to cycle the beautiful Colorado Rockies, but more than that, he is riding for a cause - the Saint Brigid Parish Tuition Endowment Fund.
About the Tuition Endowment Fund
What is an endownment? A fund that holds the principal in perpetuity (forever). Grants are made each year on the investment income. Since 2009, this endowment fund has:
- Helped 139 children attend Catholic schools by providing $348,000 for their education
- Currently the endowment fund has a value of $1,100.000
- Father Steve has raised $196,000 from his rides over the years
About the Ride
The 35th annual Ride the Rockies is a loop that starts and ends in Durango and will tour Cortez, Norwood, and Ouray County. Fr. Steve and his fellow cyclists will cycle for 6 days, covering 418 miles and ascending over 28,484 vertical feet. Click on the map to see an interactive daily route guide.
