Three Texas brothers are crossing the country on the ride of a lifetime with the goal of helping two important causes and you can follow their journey here on WFAA.com.

Bobby, Raleigh and Dennis Jenkins, of ABC Home & Commercial Services, are riding across the country on their bicycles to raise awareness and funds for ‘A Child’s Hope’ and ‘Moss Pieratt Foundation’.

‘A Child’s Hope’ works to create homes for lost and abandoned children in Haiti and ‘Moss Pieratt Foundation’ helps raise awareness and funds for Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood Syndrome (SUDC) in children over age 12 months. SUDC hits close to home for the family.

In 2014, 15-month-old Moss Pieratt passed away from SUDC. It's a condition similar to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, but SUDC strikes children age 1 to 17.

Both of these organizations are dear to the Jenkins’ brothers hearts and all donations made will be evenly split between the two.

The ride kicked off in Anacortes, Washington early Tuesday and will stretch across the northern half of the United States with a big finish in New York City.
