Pregnancy Resource Center Liaison
Biking for Babies
Have you ever prayed to find your purpose in life? So many times we pray for health, protection, change, healing etc., but never want ourselves to be the answer. While studying at UW- La Crosse, I decided to answer my own prayers to end abortion by saying YES to joining the prolife movement in 2013. I have since been a proud member of Biking for Babies, taking on various roles. I currently am a rider and the Pregnancy Resource Center Liaison. My job is to find and cultivate relationships with PRCs around the country, thus spreading word of their existence and life-saving work to everyone who comes to know Biking for Babies. Beyond this organization, I also am a Group Exercise Coordinator and Personal Trainer for Green Bay and Appleton, Wisconsin YMCAs. My main purpose is to influence others to establish healthy habits and healthy relationships within their lives; something we should all strive for every day.
“Because within the incidents and outside of the incidents (including severe thunderstorms, broken bikes, and nonexistent roads), there was immeasurable beauty, joy, trust, hope, and radical love. The fact that we were able to feel the sun, to choose to overcome, to be joyful—those moments reminded us of the beauty of our life, and we were invited not to take them for granted.” Read Sarah’s reflection on this year’s Eastern Ride!
