Central Iowa Ride for Life Feature

Because Jimmy and Kimberly are siblings, they’ve spent years supporting each other’s efforts to renew the culture of life through long-term impact and short-term assistance.

Kimberly Hurd is on the board of Martha’s House of Hope, a maternity home in Ames, IA. Martha’s House of Hope can house up to four women at one time, and provide resources to support the moms physically, emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually until the child celebrates its first birthday.

Kimberly’s love for supporting pregnant moms stems from her love and appreciation of her adopted child’s first mother. Jimmy, once seeing a statement from Saint John Paul II, realized he was not doing anything to defend life, then united his passion for endurance sports and desire to renew the culture to co-found Biking for Babies.

Together, Martha’s House of Hope is one of the recipients of advocacy, support, and funds from Biking for Babies’ Central Iowa Local Ride in Ames, taking place this year on Saturday, June 29.

Everyone has a place in the ongoing work to renew the culture of life. Biking for Babies’ annual formation program for young adults is only part of the solution to change how pregnant women, innocent pre-born children, and those on the margins are humanized. All efforts, including hoping on a dusty bike to ride 5 miles through the plains of Iowa, when united with others and a mission, are powerful and life-changing.

You can sign up for the Central Iowa Ride for Life until June 27, and peer-to-peer fundraising for Biking for Babies is encouraged.
