Children’s Ride 24 Update Those of you who rode with us last year remember the unforeseen circumstance that impacted our police escort.  In our preparation for this year’s ride, we have worked diligently contacting multiple police agencies to secure an escort. Unfortunately, our efforts were not successful.  This year, we are offering a “self-guided” ride from Emerald Downs to Destination Harley-Davidson.  Maps for three suggested ride routes that can be followed solo or as a group will be made available through our website, social media and day of the event.  We were fortunate to have escort services available to us for many years.  Even though times have changed…the need for uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s has not.  Last year, Seattle Children’s uncompensated care covered over $146 million in medical care to patient families.  Your support makes hope, care and cures possible.
