Friends and loved ones,
In September of 2007, my family experienced a tragedy in the loss of my brother Douglas to suicide. The months leading up to this life changing event, and the years after, were extremely painful and difficult to navigate. Douglas was an avid motorcycle enthusiast, and rode many bikes through his life. After his passing I inherited Doug's last bike, and have ridden it ever since. Throughout the years there have been other men in my life who have struggled with depression, thoughts of and attempts at suicide. The stats on male suicide and depression are staggering, and it's unfortunately very likely most of us have friends and family who've battled with these issues.
This May 23rd, for the fourth year, I'll be joining men and women around the world, riding my brother's bike, in the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride: a motorcycle ride raising funds and awareness for men's health issues - including mental health and suicide prevention, and prostate cancer. For me, this is an opportunity to honor my brother, support men facing these issues, and raise funds to help prevent suicide and other common men's health problems.
Please join me by showing your support for the men in your life - your fathers, your sons, your uncles, your brothers, and friends - by donating to this cause, promoting and/or joining this event.
Thanks so much for your support... Shiny side up!
