Columbus, Ga. –Columbus businessman Scott Ressmeyer and 11 friends are two-thirds of the way through their 2013 Scott’s Ride for Miracles, a 21-day, 9,000-mile, 48-state motorcycle trek to raise awareness and money to benefit Children’s Miracle Network at The Medical Center in Columbus, Ga. The so-called Miracle Riders left The Medical Center on Friday, May 3. They have spent the last two weeks travelling through the south, up the west coast and through the plains and Midwest.
As they begin their final week of the fundraising journey, they will ride through the Ohio Valley and then down the East Coast, before arriving back home in Columbus, Georgia on Friday, May 24. During a stop in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, May 22, the Miracle Riders will be honored in a special ceremony on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. At 10:00 a.m. on May 22, Congressman Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA 3rd District) will present the riders with a United States flag that flew over the Capitol on May 3, the day the 2013 Miracle Ride began.
