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!
