Since I bought my first Harley Davidson 11 years ago, I have wanted to do the “4 Corners” ride on my motorcycle. This ride includes literally riding around the perimeter of the United States and stopping at each of the furthest corners of the country. Destinations are Key West Florida, San Luis Obispo California, Blaine Washington, and Machais Maine. The ride is a total of 8300 miles over a 17-20 day period, weather permitting. Over the years I have mapped it out and considered taking the time off to do the ride, but life kept getting in the way, so I would put it off until the next spring or fall. Last fall, after noticing diminished use of my fine motor skills and muscle cramping in my left hand, I was diagnosed with a motor neuron disease. The preliminary diagnosis from my doctors is ALS. This diagnosis has shocked me into realizing that life will not wait until a more convenient time and I am finally going to do the “4 corners” in May with my good friend Paul Zepf. Paul worked as a Boston Fire Fighter for 33 years, and retired in 2006 from Rescue Company 22.
I am doing this ride not only to fulfill my dream but also to raise money and awareness for Compassionate Care ALS. Although I have not known Ron Hoffman for a long time, he has already made a difference in my life with his support during this diagnosis period. Please consider donating to this amazing organization that helps patients, caregivers, and loved ones through their journeys with ALS. During the trip I will be sending reports and pictures back to show our progress. Please visit this website for periodic updates.

Compassionate Care ALS is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and will provide a receipt allowing you to claim a tax deduction as allowed by law. Donations by credit card will show up as Paypal *CCALS* on your statement.
