Its DGAF's favorite time of year! Bruce Rossmeyer’s Ride for Children, presented by Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Harley-Davidson and JM Family Enterprises, with support of The Central Florida Rydaz AC will be held on Sunday, October 10, 2010!

In 1995, Bruce Rossmeyer, owner of Daytona Harley-Davidson became involved with Camp Boggy Creek. After visiting this amazing Camp for children with chronic and life threatening illnesses, he pledged to raise $1,000,000 within ten years. Thanks to the support and help from so many motorcycle enthusiasts throughout Florida and the Southeast, over $3,800,000 has been generated since inception.

The Ride continues to grow every year and not only raises dollars but much needed awareness of the Camp. Last year’s Ride netted almost $300,000 for the kids of Camp Boggy Creek. None of this would be possible without the generous sponsors, supporters, riders, volunteers and employees of Daytona Harley-Davidson who make this great Ride possible furthering the mission of Camp Boggy Creek.

Past Grand Marshals have included Paul Newman, General Norman Schwarzkopf, Kyle Petty, Lorenzo Lamas, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Orange County Choppers - Paul Sr. and Paul, Jr., Arlen Ness, Eddie Trotta, Roland Sands, Jesse Rooke, the late Johnny Chop, James Gandolfini and Aida Turturro of the Sopranos, Billy Lane, Vinnie DiMartino and Cody Connelly, Dave Perewitz, Shannon Burke and the Monsters of the Morning from Real Radio 104.1 and Frank Scott of WHOG 95.7 Radio.

Saturday night before the Ride, the “Bruce Rossmeyer Roundup” party hosted by Destination Daytona and event sponsors allows all VIP Riders to pick up credentials the night before the Ride.
