Two Waco firefighters, who are also brothers, set off today on a cross country bike ride to New York City.

Justin and Jered Wise took to the road Wednesday morning at 8 a.m., starting their more than 2,000 mile journey.

They are raising money for the Waco Fire Department Honor Guard Pipes and Drums Movember fund. The money helps firefighters and their families in times of need, as well as an organization that benefits orphans and widows in New York.

The Brothers say that not only are the taking the trip for a good cause, but also because it is something that they can cross off both their bucket list. They say the ride should be complete by April 30.
