The 2019 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride saw $5.7 million USD raised as 115,000 classic and vintage styled motorcyclists in 678 cities rode together in the annual ride.

The ride is dedicated to bringing men and women together from around the world to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health programs on behalf of official charity partner, the Movember Foundation.

The Movember Foundation are the leading charity dedicated to stopping men from dying too young. With close to one million men losing their lives annually from suicide and prostate cancer, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride and the Movember Foundation are dedicated to their joint ambition of helping men live happier and healthier lives.

Founded in 2012 by Mark Hawwa in Sydney, Australia, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has since raised over $25 million USD for men’s health.

The event utilises a peer-to-peer fundraising platform, allowing fundraisers to personalise and share their online profiles with their families and friends. While rides have been completed, fundraising for the 2019 campaign will remain open until 31 October.
