Biking for Babies, a pro-life nonprofit aiming to renew the culture of life one pedal stroke and one pregnancy resource center at a time, was supposed to be riding through Springfield July 17 and have a fundraising event at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The young adult missionaries were planning on riding across the country on four routes, with groups starting in Wisconsin, Ohio, Mississippi, and Colorado. Due to different coronavirus related restrictions in each state, however, they have decided to ride within the boundaries of Wisconsin and not ride through Central Illinois.
Each rider or support crew missionary raises money based on a goal they have set; on average they raise $3,500 each. The money goes to the overall pregnancy resource center fund and funds are divided equally among all their partnered centers. Two partners are in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois: Choices Pregnancy and Health based in Charleston and ThriVe Metro East based in Godfrey.

One hundred percent of funds raised by the missionaries go to their pregnancy resource center partners.
