a global ride: revel with a cause
On Sunday, September 25th, 2016, tens of thousands of distinguished gentlefolk in hundreds of cities worldwide will don their cravats, tweak their moustaches, press their tweed and sit astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer research and suicide prevention. This is the 2016 Distinguished Gentlemens Ride.
The first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities. The success of the event encouraged the founder to consider how it could be used to support a worthy cause.
- In 2013, over 11,000 participants in 145 cities around the world raised over $277k (US) for prostate cancer research.
- In 2014, over 20,000 participants in 257 cities in 58 countries raised over $1.5M (US) for prostate cancer research.
- In 2015, over 37,000 participants in 410 cities in 79 countries raised over $2.3M (US) for prostate cancer research.
