GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Cruising 48 states on a Harley Davidson, one man and his dog are breaking world records while raising money for children who've lost their parents in active duty.

Adam Sandoval and his dog named Scooter are visiting all 696 Harley Davidson Dealerships in the U.S., selling all of his possessions to make the journey possible.

After six months on the road, Sandoval has donated almost $50,000 to the American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund.

"We're on schedule to raise over $250,000 for these kids, just man, his dog, and his cell phone on the road," said Sandoval.

He and his dog are breaking the world record for longest charity ride, and the record for the most miles driven in a single fun on a motorcycle.

"He's a road dog man, Scooter loves the road," said Sandoval. "He's been about 25,000 miles since we left and he gets a warm welcome everywhere we go."

With a strong support from the Grand Rapids Harley Davidson community.

"It takes a lot of dedication to take 18 months out of your life like this," said Fixed Harley Operations Director, Jim Vendeville. "I really admire someone who's willing to do this and that's why we wanna fully support his cause."
