We ride for kids.
Thanks to annual donations from caring individuals and an endowment funded with the help of the Rotary Clubs of Pierce County, nearly 15,000 children suspected to be victims of abuse or neglect have received care since 1988.
The Children's Advocacy Center of Pierce County (located on the Mary Bridge Children's campus) offers medical assistance, family support and general education to empower members of the community to recognize signs of abuse.Last year, the Children’s Advocacy Center of Pierce County served 610 kids, completed 259 medical evaluations and 445 forensic interviews. Regardless of the type of abuse they experienced or witnessed, 450 children were given access to social work and advocacy support compared to 266 in 2020.
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.
For this reason, all Courage proceeds benefit child abuse prevention and treatment programs at Mary Bridge Children's.
