Scootin' America Charity Ride raises money for soldiers' children

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Chattahoochee Valley welcomed two very special guests to the area to raise awareness for a worthy cause.

The Scootin' America Charity Ride made a stop at the Chattahoochee Harley dealership on Tuesday afternoon. 

Adam Sandoval and his Chihuahua named Scooter have been riding their motorcycle for the past 100 days on their journey to visit 360 Harley Davidson dealerships in the U.S.

Sandoval created the charity ride to raise money for the children of fallen soldiers and says remembering the sacrifice made by them is his source of motivation. 

"What keeps me going is it simple," Sandoval said. "It's just the fact that these guys are overseas fighting for our freedom, living conditions way more hostile than anything I go through, and they do that for our freedom."

To date, Sandoval has raised more than $30,000 and his journey is on track to break multiple world records, including the longest charity ride in history.
