Riding for a Reason

MS stops people from moving. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease affecting the central nervous system. It slows or stops the brain from sending out messages to the rest of the body. It is progressive and unpredictable. Although there are new treatments to slow the damage, currently there is no cure. MS gets in the way of plans, tasks and everyday life. I cherish every morning I am still able to ride my motorcycle or even walk. Lots of folks living with MS do not start each day so lucky. As I deal daily with my MS symptoms of weakness, memory loss and fatigue, I often find myself unable to finish tasks I started or even remember what I had planned to do. With that in mind, I bring you the 2014 MS5000


"Because it isn't always about the miles."

The Reason I Ride

In 2012, I made my MS diagnosis public and made a decision to dedicate riding my motorcycle 1 million miles as an advocate raising awareness and funds while reaching out to other with MS, encouraging them to continue following their passions and reaching for their goals. Follow my journey at Longhaulpaul


Currently there is no cure for MS. The money we raise will be used to find the cause, treatment, and ultimately the cure of multiple sclerosis. The money is also used to provide education, information, direct financial support, and scholarships to individuals and families living with MS.

On behalf of all of us who are living with MS and hoping for a cure, thank you.
