Cyclists will be riding across the country beginning July 11, to raise awareness for the unborn and to fundraise for pregnancy resource centers.
This year, 50 college students and young adults across the country will be riding an average of 100 miles a day for a combined 2,700 miles, with the nonprofit Biking for Babies.
Now in its 12th year of holding bicycle rides for the pro-life cause, Biking for Babies aims to raise $225,000 this year for pregnancy resource centers. By hitting its goal, the group will have surpassed its cumulative $1 million donation mark for its history.
Biking for Babies was started by board chairman Jimmy Becker and his friend Mike Shaefer in March 2009. The two young men took their bikes to Southern Illinois University Carbondale, with the goal to bicycle 600 miles to fundraise and raise awareness for pregnancy resource centers. They raised over $14,000 for a local pregnancy resource center on that first journey.
