Welcome to Kayla's Courage Ride Fundraising Page!
As some of you may know, I am currently living in Washington State on a travel nursing assignment with the Multicare health system. My travel company reached out to me with the amazing opportunity to fundraise and participate in a bike race to raise money for the Children's Hospital here . Specifically, 100% of your donation will benefit child abuse prevention and treatment programs at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and Health Network.
Last year they saw 610 kids who were abused or witnessed something really traumatic and 450 of those kids were given on-going access to special clinicians or advocacy support, compared to just 266 the year prior.
Tragically, much of what the children's hospital does through their child advocacy center does not get reimbursed by insurance. This is why the Courage ride exists: to raise funds in order to support the work the children's hospital is doing with kids who are scared, alone, and in need of expert care and support.
While I am not accustomed to asking others to donate to causes, I stand fully behind this because 100% of your giving goes directly to helping these kids, and 0% goes to my ride or the event.
If you would like to learn more, I recommend watching the following video which talks more about the care the Child Advocacy Center Provides:
