Married to a Cause
MEAD, Colo. — Forget 1,200-thread-count linens and fine china.
In lieu of wedding gifts, Darrin Jensen and Michelle Fury are asking for donations to help them meet their fundraising goal for the Courage Classic, a three-day, 157-mile bike tour in July through Summit County to benefit The Children's Hospital in Denver.
"It's very meaningful for the two of us because i'ts a cause we both believe in," said Fury, 40, a Denver resident and yoga therapist at The Children's Hospital.
Fury said her nearly five years at the hospital have shown her the difference a psychotherapeutic approach can have on children.
Her fiance also has a connection to the hospital.
The youngest son from his previous marriage, Andrew, has cerebral palsy.
