Scootin’ America will chronicle the travels of Adam Sandoval and his Chihuahua, Scooter, as they ride their motorcycle to every Harley Davidson dealership in the lower 48 states to raise money for the families of fallen soldiers—specifically The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, which helps to ensure that higher education is a possibility for children whose parents lost their lives in the line of duty. The ride will set a new world record for most miles in one country, the largest group ride and the longest charity ride in history
The charity ride will take Adam and Scooter to over 690 Harley Davidson dealerships, logging an estimated 65,000 miles across every one of the lower 48 states. Along the way they’ll explore the best riding routes in America, explore local customs and legends and, most importantly, raise money for fallen veterans’ families.
Pound for pound the most traveled canine co-pilot on the planet, Scooter has logged more than 20,000 miles with Adam over the past 6 years. Not your typical lap dog, Scooter prefers his riding seat on Adam’s Harley to most any place he can imagine. Not one to let his size be a limitation, Scooter has been known to regularly feast on meals twice his weight and chew equally large bones. Don’t let his quiet demeanor fool you either…this dog is one badass boy. When he’s not riding shotgun with Adam, he has his back—truly embodying the term ‘man’s best friend.’ And, yes, ladies…he’s single.
For most of his adult life, Adam has taken the road less travelled. A born entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Adam parlayed his love of martial arts into several successful business ventures. While in his mid-20s he opened the first of several MMA training centers in his hometown of Green Bay, WI. He also has promoted over 70 live MMA events, patented a mobile MMA training cage and developed a production company which has produced over 43 episodes of MMA reality TV and live streaming events. Most recently, he has been COO of Fighters Source; an organization founded to identify the best amateur MMA talent in the country, and pave the way for amateur MMA to become an Olympic sport.
Adam’s creation of Scootin’ America will keep him on the philanthropy road...this time, literally. By applying his passion for innovation and fueled by his regret of not choosing to serve in the military, Adam’s plan is to, simply, give back. Adam hopes that his efforts will not only raise money for the families of fallen veterans, but awareness of the challenges they face on a daily basis.
