Christian's Courage Classic Campaign
My team and I are going to tackle the hills of the PNW in the Courage Classic bike race this year on August 28th and 29th in support of Mary Bridge Children’s Child Abuse Intervention Department (CAID). Yes, I've recently had knee surgery, yes I'm not REALLY out of shape because of that and no, my orthopedic surgeon is not please with me (sorry Paul). This year though, I'm dedicating my ride to my parents who defied the odds and fought hard against cancer until the end. They are my inspiration and if they could fight so hard, I can throw my bike in granny gear and get over the pass! As some of you may know, I am a board member of the Mary Bridge Children's Foundation. I do this for many reasons, not the least of which being service to the children of our community and of course, my own two boys. There is no other place I'd rather take my sons and our family is so fortunate to have Mary Bridge in our community. While many of us are blessed enough to have access to whatever care may be necessary for our children, many families don't share this luxury. Nevertheless, Mary Bridge is committed to making all programs and services available to all children, regardless of their family's ability to pay... because all children deserve the same chance! It is imperative that we continue to retain all services, continue to advance or expand those already in place, and add new services to address ever changing needs of our children. Mary Bridge cannot do this without your help. Please be generous in helping me reach my goal and help kids at Mary Bridge get the services they need?
100% of your donation will support the programs and services CAID offers to help children and families seek justice and healing.
IN 2020, OVER 650 CHILDREN WALKED THROUGH THE DOORS OF THE CHILD ADVOCACY CENTER (CAC) NEEDING SUPPORT AND HEALING. JOIN US AS WE ENSURE THAT EACH OF THESE CHILDREN GET THE JUSTICE AND HEALING THEY DESERVE.
Along with the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC), CAID serves nearly 2,000 children annually by bringing together medical and mental health professionals, social workers, law enforcement, and legal advocates to provide comprehensive care.
There are many ways you can help!
Ready. Set. Courage.
