Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride Raises Almost $5.5 Million for Charity
A Lot of Money for Men’s Health
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is one of the coolest things supporting men’s health in the world. This year, the ride took place on September 29, 2019, and managed to raise almost $5.5 million for charity.
The event consisten of 678 different rides across the world. It involved over 100,000 riders. In the United States, there were about 15,094 riders that gathered nearly $3 million in donations. England raised $1.3 million and several other countries contributed as well.
While $5.5 million is a very awesome number, last year the event managed to raise over $6.2 million. Still, the event organizers have to be happy with this year’s impressive results. The money will go to various charities around the world. In the U.S, most of the money will go to the Movember Foundation, Making Connections Program, and TrueNTH organizations including USA TrueNTH Program or True NTH Sexual Health Project, according to RideApart.
If you don’t know much about the event, it’s a classic and vintage motorcycle ride that was started in Sydney, Australia, by Mark Hawwa. The ride was inspired by Don Draper from the show Mad Men. As a part of the ride, the participants dress in their best suits and get as dapper as possible. The DGR as the event is known even has it’s own style guide that you can check out if you want to ride next year. I highly recommend it.
