Globally renowned Australian based charity event, The Distinguished Gentleman‰Ûªs Ride, has doubled their commitment to aid the funding of men's mental health programs.
This decision was made by Sydneysider, Mark Hawa after a volunteer event host took his own life.
In partnership with the Movember Foundation, The Distinguished Gentleman‰Ûªs Ride are continuing to commit 80% of total funds raised to prostate cancer research, with the remainder to go towards men's mental health programs.
Over 70,000 dapper men and women in over 600 cities worldwide will ride classic and vintage styled motorcycles on Sunday, September 24th. On this day, streets across the world - including Sydney, Paris, New York and London - will be humming with the tune of a united front against killers of men.
In Australia, suicide rates are three times higher than that of women - as a result, the Distinguished Gentleman‰Ûªs Ride are on a mission to raise awareness globally, in their crusade to make life better for men everywhere.
"It's an important year for the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. What was already a personal event for many has taken on a new meaning, especially after losing one of our own. We ride this year for the men of the world who struggle with mental health and for the families and individuals whose lives are affected by prostate cancer‰Û
