My Personal Fundraising Page
Please join me as I Ride with Courage. I am fundraising to support Mary Bridge Children’s child abuse prevention and treatment programs, 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?
The photo on this page was taken at Chambers Bay looking out to the Olympic Mountains in the background. If you live in the Puget Sound area, you're keenly aware of Mt. Rainier's majesty. The Olympics however are much less assuming and therefore easily hidden by a few clouds.
This got me to thinking about why I'm riding Courage this year. The very notion of a single child who can't count on their own safety on a daily basis is unthinkable. And the fact that the Child Advocacy Center at Mary Bridge served more than 650 kids in 2020 is unbearable. A future where these kids can rely on feeling safe and secure is obscured from view, not unlike low-hanging mist shrouding the Olympics.
This thought has given new meanings to those morning when the horizon is clear and the snow-capped Olympics sparkle in the distance. It reminds me that there's a reason we do this ride: to dispel the clouds and mist obscuring a safe future for so many kids in our community. And that motivates me when I climb the tough hills on my training rides.
100% of your donation will benefit child abuse prevention and treatment programs at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and Health Network.
Join me as we ensure that each of these children get the justice and healing they deserve.
