Who: Courageous Healers 501(c)3 _ Tax Id # 27-4159392
What: Ride Across America to STOMP OUT SHAME
Where: Indio, California to Beach Lake Pennsylvania
When: 6/18/2017 – 7/27/2017
Why: The Founder of Courageous Healers, Randy Boyd, believes that there is less of a stigma for women who have been sexually abused than for men who have been sexually abused. The reality is that in many abuse cases, the perpetrators are highly aware of the child tendency to self blame and will prey on that. We aim to raise awareness on courageous healing by interrupting the social stigmas surrounding victims of sexual abuse.
Courageous Healers contends to raise awareness that any experience making a child
feel isolated, ashamed, violated or frightened due to sexual content is sexual abuse.
To pave a safe way for our children, and a safe way back for the victims of childhood abuse.
“The point of our project is to help (those) who have experienced sexual abuse to finally be able to name it and therefore finally be able to treat it and actually get
some relief from the mental torment it can cause.” _ Randy Boyd
