Scott Ressmeyer is going to visit 48 states on his motorcycle and hopes to raise $35,000 for Children's Miracle Network.
The money total is the price of a GE Omni Giraffe Bed for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The bed is a highly specialized neonatal incubator.
Ressmeyer, vice-president of Country's Barbecue, came up for the ride idea to celebrate his 50th birthday which is May 21.
His sendoff will be May 8 at a CMN fund raising event at The Medical Center.
