A local businessman and his two brothers are hitting the road for a nearly 4,000-mile journey across the country. On bicycle. And for Bobby Jenkins, it's personal.
While all three are riding for charity to fundraise for causes they believe in, Jenkins is riding to honor the life of his late grandchild who suddenly and mysteriously died three years ago.
For months, Jenkins has left work, pulled on his biking gear and put mile after mile on the road.
He's got the lightweight bike. Comfort matters when you're on the road for a long, long time. He was gearing up for the ride of his life.
And that 70-mile routine will continue -- every day -- for 3,500 miles.
Oh, and did we mention he's 58?
"I think people do think, 'Man at your age, 3,500 miles is a long way.' But I think they know where my heart is," Jenkins said.
Turns out he's right. His wife and daughter may give him a hard time, but they agree.
That's because Jenkins is riding this journey for a purpose very dear to their entire family.
In the midst of this family's worst moment, even more pain came their way.
Doctors looked at the autopsy and, for the cause of death, could only say: "Unknown."
The family couldn't accept that answer, and thankfully, didn't have to. A group in New York reached out with the first possible answer: SUDC, or Sudden Unexplained Death of a Child.
You may be familiar with SIDS -- Sudden Infant Death Syndrome -- but SUDC is completely different. It's diagnosed in children ages 1 to 17. SUDC does not explain what happened -- it's more of classification of any unexplained death that researchers are trying to determine.
"We've got to find answers, and we've got a little angel on our shoulder helping us along," Jan said.
With his family at home supporting him, and the memory of his grandson pushing him through every mile,
To raise funds and awareness and to make sure no one else ever loses their Moss.
We are keeping up with the Jenkins brothers on their journey, and you can too.
