Motorcyclists log 230,000 Miles and Raise $22K for Multiple Sclerosis

Riders from all across USA rode their motorcycles for 50 days while raising 
awareness and funds for Multiple Sclerosis.

LONDONDERRY, N.H. - Nov. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- Since it's inception five years ago, the MS5000 has raised over $125,000 for charity organizations that benefit MS patients and their families. This year, 57 riders from all over the United States rode their motorcycles as many miles as they could over 50 days while soliciting donations from their family and friends. From September 1st through October 20th, they documented their miles, gaining one point for every mile and ten points for every dollar they raised. The winner gets a trophy and bragging rights, and for 2018, Luke Rutledge from Missouri won by riding 6762 miles and raising a whopping $3374 dollars!

100% of the proceeds went to MS Views and News, Inc., and their Ride to Reach Rural America initiative.
"It is really incredible, to see these men and women dedicate so many hours and miles to help us deliver education, inspiration and hope to so many families struggling with MS in remote areas of the country," 
said Stuart Schlossman, the President of MS Views and News.

The MS5000 motorcycle challenge is organized by Longhaulpaul (Paul Pelland) who despite having MS himself, is 340,000 miles into his million mile journey Chasing the Cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
