Bring the Grit Contest

It takes more than an elite recovery program to get back in the game. It takes what our patients bring to the gym every time they work out with our sport-specialized physical therapists and athletic trainers. It takes grit.

How do you bring the grit?

If you’ve ever come back from a sports injury, set a goal for yourself and conquered it, or proven the competition wrong by bringing your best – you’ve got grit.

Tell us how you bring the grit on social media by using #BringTheGrit and @ChildrensColo for a chance to win a jersey signed by Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay.
