Miracle Riders prepare for upcoming trip to support local children
A group of local motorcyclists will leave next month for its annual charity ride, with the support of Synovous, as supporting sponsor.
Synovous will be supporting the 2018 ride's benefiting charities such as the local facilities of the Methodist Home for Children and Youth of South Georgia and the National Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Piedmont Columbus Regional-Midtown Campus.
The two-week ride will take the participants to various locations across the country, with riders learning of their destination day by day.
Scott Ressmeyer, founder of Miracle Riders says, "It truly is not possible to do this without the support a community that's very very involved. And we live in a community that is incredibly involved. And that's really what makes the difference. We're a bunch of guys out here just telling the story. This community is the story that we want to tell."
The ride will raise awareness for the Methodist Home and raise funds for that organization's two campuses in Columbus.
Carpenters Way Home for Boys and Arabella Home for Girls are residential facilities provide treatment for abused, neglected and abandoned children.
