COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Scott's Ride for Miracles Riders will be heading off Friday morning for another trip across the country.

For the sixth year in a row, Scott Ressmeyer and 15 Miracle Riders will ride their motorcycles across the 48 states to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network at Midtown Medical Center.

Riders will leave from the fountain at Midtown Medical Center at 10 a.m. Friday morning and will spend the next 21 days riding their motorcycles across the country. The Riders have pledged to raise $1 million over the ride's span. They raised over $650,000 in the first four years alone.

Riders will be interactive by blogging about their trip. They'll also carry cameras on their helmets and handle-bars and will live stream the ride online. To donate to Scott's Ride for the Children's Miracle Network head to rideformiracles.com.
