Getting from one spot to another on the Anschutz Medical Campus can be a trek. To quickly get back and forth across campus, Glenn T. Furuta (right) bought a Razor scooter.
Furuta, pediatric gastroenterologist and director of the Gastrointestinal Eosinophilic Diseases Program (GEDP) at Children’s Hospital Colorado, says it’s fun, easy and good exercise.
He attached Texas Longhorns to the handlebars for the University of Texas, where he attended undergraduate school.
After Furuta, fellow physician Cara Mack (left) bought a scooter. When Edwin de Zoeten (center) joined the Digestive Health Institute four years ago, they initiated him by giving him a scooter.
The trio, aptly named the “Smooth Movers,” scoot even into the colder months. “We can get anywhere in 7 minutes,” Furuta says. “I can do it in 5,” Mack says. “Oooh,” de Zoeten says and laughs. “You should race.”
