PRESS RELEASE: THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN’S RIDE 2019
ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH, 2019
Over 125,000 classic and vintage styled motorcyclists around the world will suit-up in their smartest attire and unite in the annual The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, with the aim of raising $7 Million USD for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health initiatives on behalf of official charity partner, the Movember Foundation.
The Movember Foundation is the leading charity dedicated to helping men lead happier and healthier lives. Together with The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, they are dedicated to addressing some of the largest health issues faced by men around the world.
Founded in 2012 by Mark Hawwa in Sydney, Australia, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has raised over $18.5M USD for men’s health, with a goal of raising a further $7M USD to the cause in 2019.
With over 1 million men losing their lives annually to suicide and prostate cancer, this event is calling on the global classic and vintage style motorcycling community to stop men dying too young. This year, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride will parade through the hearts of over 700 cities across 110 countries on Sunday the 29th of September, 2019.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride website, www.gentlemansride.com, is a peer-to-peer fundraising platform allowing fundraisers to register, personalise, and share their online profiles. Riders must register upon the website to take part and view their local ride details.
Fundraising rewards include motorcycles from global partner Triumph Motorcycles and an array of tempting rewards from various prize partners.
This goal is made possible with the support of long-standing global partners Triumph Motorcycles, Lubricant Partner ELF Lubricants, Helmet partner Hedon Workshop and Safety Partner REV’IT!
With major cities such as Sydney, London, New York City, Los Angeles and Milan topping in excess of over 1,000+ motorcyclists per ride, the event is a sight to behold and not to be missed. See below for a taste of what to expect at your nearest Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.
