2023 Featured Speaker: To Be Announced!

2022 Speaker: Tricia Leu

Former Patient At Thrive St. Louis Now A Major Inspiration

Our 2022 guest speaker was Tricia, a patient served by ThriVe pregnancy resource center in St. Louis, one of Biking for Babies’ partnered pregnancy resource centers. ThriVe met Tricia in her crisis, her life of drugs and promiscuity, and supported her in having her baby Nehmiah and became a community of support on her journey toward faithful living and motherhood.

Pictured right with her son Nehmiah, she thrives on inspiring others to overcome the challenges of this world by embracing those obstacles as gifts that will elevate to a greater measure of compassion and a deeper-rooted faith.

Here is Belle, Thrive’s Mobile Medical Center! Belle travels around St. Louis offering free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds. Come tour this ultrasound bus at the 2023 Celebration!
