Paul Pelland, AKA Longhaulpaul, set his third world record by riding his motorcycle for 24 straight hours on a dynamometer. In the process, he raised $18,500 for Multiple Sclerosis charity, MS Views and News, Inc.
The Longhaulpaul “Nonstop to Nowhere” event was broadcast live on Facebook in a telethon-style fundraiser as Pelland rode his 2018 Yamaha Star Venture motorcycle at freeway speeds on a dyno for 24-straight hours with no rest breaks or stops, traveling an estimated 1,674 miles.
The event offered a variety of entertainment including Pelland playing guitar, eating bugs and raffling $3,600 worth of prizes, all while seated on the Star Venture. Thousands of viewers from around the world tuned in throughout the broadcast, and hundreds of donors contributed $18,500 to MS Views and News, funding educational programs for people living with Multiple Sclerosis.
After being diagnosed with MS himself, Paul began a million-mile journey raising awareness and funds as he toured the country on his motorcycle. After six years, he has ridden 350,000 miles, raised $150K for charity and has shared his inspirational story with more 250 audiences across the country.
