Tom's Courage Bike Ride Fundraising Page
I am fundraising to support children served by Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital Child Abuse Intervention Department through riding the annual Courage bike ride put on by Mary Bridge and Rotary. I can use your help.
As I've discussed with many of you, the Rotary clubs of Pierce County became involved over 25 years ago in raising funds to start the child abuse department at Mary Bridge Childrens Hospital after a young boy was severly abused in Tacoma. Through these efforts children and their families can receive a full range of medical, mental and legal services, at no charge, to help them through the challenges created by child abuse. Unfortunately, the number of cases of children being abused has not declined, Mary Bridge alone served over 400 children in one year, more than 1 a day!
Any contribution you can provide is appreciated.
If you can help please donate to assist kids at Mary Bridge get the services they need?
