Scott Ressmeyer introduced the team Wednesday who will accompany him on his annual journey across 48 states in 21 days.
The voyage started as a solo trip for Scott four years ago to benefit the Children's Miracle Network at the Medical Center.
Since then, the ride has expanded with more participants and a lofty goal to raise one million dollars.
Scott and his 13 friends will leave the hospital on Friday, May 4 at 11:30 and return May 25. They will spend the next three weeks raising money and touring Children's Miracle Network hospitals across the country.
This year again, News Leader 9 will be partnering with them to show their entire journey. Check in each day for daily updates on WTVM and on WTVM.com for new posts, pictures and video of their ride.
