This weekend, join men and women across the globe in the 2016 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride to find a cure for Prostate Cancer and to help Men’s Mental Health.
The first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities. The success of the event encouraged the founder Mark Hawwa to consider how it could be used to support a worthy cause.
Over 1,300 men a day die of prostate cancer worldwide and Mark Hawwa decided that the race should support research to find a cure for this disease.
"Since the subject prostate cancer lies very close to what I am working with at Wellspect HealthCare, I find it extra encuraging and exciting to join this race", states Christian Grönlund.
"I heard about it from a friend and I thought, yeah, I would really like to participate and help to shed light on this global problem. I thought - let´s dress up like a gentleman and ride across Gothenburg to make some new friends and raise money for this cause!"
The riders have their own fundraising within the central organization, so we at Wellspect think you should support Christian and Susanna in the Green & Gray riders, who will join the ride in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Your donation will help The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride reach its total goal of $US5 Million. This is the best dressed way to fight prostate cancer and help improve men’s mental health – cheers and thank you!
What's the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride?
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together.
That 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.
