More than 70 motorcycle riders in Maryland are taking a three-day charity ride across the state.

It's all for the 3rd annual Maryland Gold Star Legacy Run.

Riders began their nearly 700-mile journey Friday at the American Legion Post in Towson.

Proceeds from the ride fund scholarships for children of soldiers killed or hurt since 9/11.

"To have a cause like this and be able to ride their motorcycles, at the same time raising money for these children, it's just an incredible feeling, not only for me, but all the riders in the group today," said Maryland Gold Star Legacy Run Chairman Joe Gladden.

Riders will be out Saturday and Sunday, with planned stops at the Rocky Gap Veterans Cemetery in Allegany County and the Gold Star Memorial in Annapolis.
