COBRAS donate funds to Project ReCycle. COBRAS president David Hunter along with COBRAS treasurer Larry Potter presented Project ReCycle’s executive director Jon Buck a donation from the COBRAS for $500.
Project ReCycle was founded in 2010 to provide smiles to children all over Colorado via a bicycle. That has not changed today. Their first run at this venture led them to create a program that would not only guarantee smiles but would also influence children’s academic behavior in a positive manner. As part of their Dream Bike Program,Gold-Participant Children, during their academic year, are encouraged to earn a bike by improving in 3 areas; Respect, Attendance and Academic Growth.

COBRAS Donate funds to Craig Hospital. COBRAS president David Hunter along with COBRAS members Craig Seaman, Hans Schulze and Larry Potter presented Michael Fordyce the President and CEO of Craig Hospital a check for $500.00 on behalf of the COBRAS. This was both a joyous and humbling experience to be able to take part in this event and see the work that Craig hospital does. Unfortunately, a fair number of Craig Hospital’s patients are cyclists, including some COBRAS members. The COBRAS are proud to be able to contribute to the work that they do.
