Courtney says...

I launched “The Ride Project” to support the Myelin Repair Foundation because I believe in the MRF’s research model that is solely focused on finding and rapidly delivering treatments for MS patients. The Ride Project ( is my commitment to donate $1,000,000 to the Myelin Repair Foundation through the sales of limited edition fine art photography focused on things that move.

On top of this commitment ,I am donating this print: ( for the online auction starting next Tuesday. The photograph that I’ve chosen to donate is titled “Spin.” This image is all about motion, energy and passion. “Spin” inspired The Ride Project, which combines my passion for cycling and photography and continues to motivate me to move forward with my fight for a cure for multiple sclerosis.
