DGR 2019 Highlights

Posted 3 years ago

With The 2019 Distinguished Gentleman's Ride prize competitions ending, we can happily announce all winners of the prestigious Top Fundraiser prizes, and the famed Gentlefolk Prize winners, along with our incredible top pillion fundraiser!

2019 has been a thrilling year, with the event raising over $5.8m USD for prostate cancer research and men's mental health on behalf of charity partner, the Movember Foundation. This year also saw a steady increase in both registered riders, with over 115,000 dapper men and women coming together across 678 cities to ride united for the cause. And of those thousands of people, we are lucky enough to reward a few fortunate folks who have raised enormous amounts this year and immortalised themselves in the DGR Hall of Fame. These spectacular folks are:

Because of your philanthropic efforts, we can continue to support the long list of awareness, support, and research programs that we are able to run with our charity partner, the Movember Foundation, in achieving our collective ambition to stop men dying too young! And this year, we took a giant leap toward achieving that goal!

Well done, you dapper gentlefolk!
