HOW DID THE DGR COME ABOUT?

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia, by Mark Hawwa. He was inspired by a photo of Don Draper from the TV series Mad Men, sitting on his 1957 Matchless G3LS in his best suit. Mark wanted to combat the negative stereotype of men on motorcycles while raising money for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men. Funds raised at the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride will go to Movember, the world’s largest men’s health organization. Movember invests in prostate cancer research and prevention, as well as programs that support men’s mental health.

Suicide prevention and men’s mental health.

Unfortunately, suicide is a major problem among men. According to statistics, three out of four people who commit suicide worldwide are men. That’s half a million every year. We need to improve men’s mental health to solve this problem.

Movember and the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride are committed to helping men talk about their health and seek help when they need it. Donations raised at the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride will fund innovative projects to support men’s mental health.

Overall, the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a great way to combine your passion for motorcycles with a good cause. You can be a part of a worldwide movement to improve men’s health and have a ton of fun in the process. So, grab your bike and join in the fun!
