The Dallas Team
This team will ride from the Lone Star State to Chi-town.
I am a newly married, soon-to-be-graduated, student in all respects, currently studying Finance and Strategy at the University of Illinois. This is my seventh year with Biking for Babies, and I look forward to offering up all the pains and joys for expected mothers and young families. Thank God for creation, salvation and multiplication. Be saints!
Hey everybody, My name is Ignatius Payne, but if that is too much to say, you can just call me Iggy. I am a student at Benedictine University in Lisle, IL close to where I live. This is my second year doing Biking for Babies and I’m as thrilled as ever. I feel like there is no better way to celebrate life than to ride 1000+ miles This is an exciting time to be involved in the pro-life movement.
So if you ask Christine Kania, she will tell you that procrastination is my middle name. Be that as it may, my first and last name is James Voissem. I am 21 years old, work for UPS, and attend College of Dupage. My family and I have deep roots in the pro-life cause and I learned about the ride from Christine and Ignatius last year. I love being outdoors and see this as being a great way to spread the ProLife message as well as a chance for all of us to grow spiritually in our faith.
Hello all! My name is Clare Eckard, and I am from Okoboji, Iowa. I am a freshman at Ave Maria University where I am majoring in Political Science. I first heard of Biking for Babies in February from a friend, and I decided to “Just do it!” Thus, yes, this will be my first ride. I can’t wait to use the talents God has given to us for His glory, for the effort of protecting life, and for upholding the worth of all individuals!
Hi everyone! My name is Katie Koetz, and I live on a farm outside of Dubuque, Iowa! I recently graduated from Loras College with a double major in Religious Studies and Social Work. I now work as a social worker in a Dubuque nursing home. This will be my first time journeying with Biking for Babies! I have a passion for protecting life of all ages, but especially the most vulnerable of all people, the unborn and the older population (as you can see by the profession I chose)! I am looking forward to spreading the Lord’s message of life and love!
Hey everyone! Kristin Anderson here, I live in Roselle IL and I am currently a student at the local community college, majoring in special education. This will be my first time participating in B4B and I am excited to be a support crew member in the van. I got interested in B4B when I heard such great feedback from friends and my brother Dan who rode last year on the New Orleans team. I think God has blessed us with such a great opportunity for our pro-life generation.
Hello! My name is Sheila Regan, and I am from Chicago, IL. This is my first year on the support team for Biking for Babies. I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I majored in Religious Studies and first became involved in the pro-life movement! I love kids, and I currently spend most of my days with them since I work as a nanny. I am very much looking forward to accompanying the bikers on their journey this summer, and I hope that our efforts will help many women choose life for their children!
