Recruiting and Training Specialist
Biking for Babies
One of the “grizzled” veterans of the group, I have been a part of Biking for Babies for 7 years. I have held the “Recruiting and Training Specialist” title for two years now and LOVE the work I get to do with Biking for Babies. I am currently a graduate assistant athletic training receiving my Master’s at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I work with the baseball team and wrestling team at UNC. Also, I have been married for 3 years and have two beautiful children. Biking for Babies is just one of many ways I try to live out a life that is for the culture of family and life. My many years with Biking for Babies has allowed me to meet a ton of awesome people from across the country who are willing to dedicate their lives to helping women, children and families in need. God has truly given me an amazing opportunity with Biking for Babies to help change this culture of death into a culture of life!
An accomplishment such as the 2017 ride and raising $80,000 (so far)–such a physical, spiritual and mental accomplishment–always bring to mind Paul’s final letter to Timothy: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7) Except… There are still women who feel lost, who feel uncared for, who feel shamed, who feel trapped, and, ultimately, feel hopeless.
Biking for Babies is a month away from kicking off its 9th annual national ride as an organization. Trainer and rider Kevin is preparing for his 7th Biking for Babies ride and this time of year always has him asking an honest question: “am I ready?”
My parents taught me from a young age the importance of a smile. To them, it demonstrated not only joy, but a sense of welcoming for people around them…They taught me to believe that if I took on the world with a smile, I would enjoy each day more, and, more over, give myself an opportunity to help those around me.
“If you went to the March for Life event this year, I sincerely say, “you rock!” But if you believe that is all you are called to do for the “pro-life” cause, then I am here to challenge you…Sweat, bleed, and hurt for the one who feels hopeless.”
“As your true physical and spiritual strength improve, you will find yourself constantly persevering through 1 more push-up and praying in thanksgiving even after a bad day. “
“As a father, I can tell you there is nothing more beautiful, exciting, scary and rewarding as parenthood.”
