Ride for the love of it…Ride for the fun of it…
Ride for Children with serious illnesses!

Are you ready to hit the road and take a ride?

Join us for the 26th Annual Bruce Rossmeyer Ride for Children on Sunday, October 4, 2020. This year’s ride will be a little different, but just as exciting. All event festivities will take place at Destination Daytona. The Volusia County Sheriff Department will escort ride participants through beautiful Ormond Beach, Florida and return to Destination Daytona. After the Ride relax and enjoy a catered lunch, live entertainment, and auction. Take part in this annual event and help raise FUNds in support of children with serious illnesses and their families that attend Camp Boggy Creek!

Bruce Rossmeyer, a man with a big heart and even bigger vision, wanted to impact the lives of children who attend Camp Boggy Creek by creating the Ride for Children 26 years ago. He often expressed his dedication to Camp’s mission by saying “It’s all about the kids!” His legacy and vision lives on, supported by everyone who participates and…. rides for the children!
