Courage Classic #13 FOR THE KIDS
Giving Children a Voice, Empowering Families to Stop Abuse
Please join me as I Ride with Courage. I am fundraising to support Pierce County kids who are victims of abuse served by Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, and I need your help! Will you donate to help me reach my goal and help kids at Mary Bridge get the services they need?
*100% of donor contributions to Mary Bridge Children’s Courage support patient care and family support at Mary Bridge.
Mary Bridge’s Child Abuse Intervention Department (CAID) supports families when child abuse is suspected or discovered. We also offer community programs to strengthen families and empower people to prevent abuse. Learn more about our programs—all free of charge—below.
Hope and Healing for Victims of Child Abuse
We work in partnership with the Children’s Advocacy Center of Pierce County to provide several services:
* Medical treatment following sexual or physical assault
* Forensic exams
* Assistance navigating the legal system and accessing community resources
* Information and referrals for families
In 2019, 415 children received outpatient medical exams, 59 medical consultations were provided to the inpatient population for injuries associated with child abuse, and 47 patients were seen on emergent request.
These services would not be possible without donor support. Insurance does not cover all medical care costs associated with abuse — especially sexual abuse — leaving victims with limited options. In their darkest hour, Courage riders can stand with victims of child abuse by ensuring children have access to the services they need to seek justice and healing.
