JOIN TEAM TIGER

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride unites classic and vintage style motorcycle riders all over the world to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health. Our focus is on gentlemen who have been dealt a tough hand in life. In particular, we raise funds for cutting-edge research into prostate cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention programs, as part of our mission to support men’s health globally. These funds are invested by our partner, the Movember Foundation, which is the world’s largest men’s health organisation.

 

Prostate cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in men. The Movember Foundation is the largest funder of prostate cancer programs in the world. One of the most worrying aspects of the disease is that most prostate cancers develop without men experiencing any symptoms in the early stages. If left untreated, prostate cancer cells may eventually spread from the prostate and invade distant parts of the body, particularly the lymph nodes and bones, producing secondary tumours in a process known as metastasis.

 

The causes of suicide are complex. There’s no single reason why men take their own lives, but we do know that by improving overall mental health we can reduce the risk of suicide. We need to address untreated mental health conditions among men. Too many men are toughing it out and struggling alone. There’s no shame in checking in your own mental wellbeing, and those close to around you. Our friends over at Movember have produced some handy guides, that might help take the sting out of broaching the subject.

OUR CHARITY PARTNER IS THE MOVEMBER FOUNDATION, THE LARGEST MEN’S HEALTH ORGANISATION IN THE WORLD. SINCE 2016, A TOTAL OF USD $10.1 MILLION HAS BEEN INVESTED IN MEN’S HEALTH PROGRAMS GLOBALLY.
