SCOTT RESSMEYER — Miracle Rider

When a guy gets a Harley®, his first motorcycle, on his 40th birthday, it’s a nice story. When he rides that same motorcycle through 48 states ten years later for his 50th, it’s a great story. When that “once-in-a-lifetime” trip grows into a big annual charity ride, it’s something truly special.

But if not for a chance encounter with a thundering herd of Harleys at a gas station in 1998, this great ride for a great cause may never have become even a glimmer in Scott Ressmeyer’s eye.

THE MIRACLE RIDE TO PARTS UNKNOWN

 Benefitting THE KIDS THAT DON’T KNOW WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS
— “Making a difference in one child’s life.”

2018 Program

In the fall of 2018 The Miracle Riders will head out again, this time to who knows where!  From Columbus Georgia the riders will head out but they won’t know where they are going each day until that morning.  They will receive a trivia question and must figure out where they are supposed to go. A new rider will be chosen each day to lead the ride and can take whatever route he chooses to get there.  This should be fun for them and for the community as they check in each morning to find out where the riders will be headed. The Miracle Riders, as always, will cover all of their own expenses for this unique ride. We hope you will join the Riders on this adventure both with your encouragement and support.

 

From the beginning The Miracle Ride has taken on a life of its own born in the hearts of the brave men who have participated in this ride.  However, at the center of its success is the people in our community who choose to make this their home and who, like The Riders want to “Make a difference in one child’s life”; to restore their health, restore their childhood, teach them life skills or simply to be a role model for their future. Our giving for 2018 will be focused on simply helping children. We will award several gifts to area charities whose mission is to help children.

 

The broader goal of the Miracle Riders is to see the future in children and do everything we can to help make that future bright.  As Scott Ressmeyer once said, “I see it this way, we are only here for a very short time, and I plan on making the most of it. If I’m lucky, a child that the Miracle Rider helped will one day ride his or her motorcycle across the country and watch the sunset over the Pacific, and know that the people of this world are good.”

 

The Miracle Riders are made up of 30 men who have embraced the cause to help children. They have collectively spent over $525,000 of their own money to be part of these rides.  They also have two more riders, Martin Thiele who passed away at the age of 18 from cancer and Andrew Wade who today is winning his battle with cancer. Both of these young men represent the desire to give back and help others. The Miracle Riders have established a legacy of giving to the children of Columbus and the Chattahoochee Valley they hope will continue for a very long time.
