$3K raised: 3 Days to DGR

Friday 20th

We hit $3010 yesterday -- and currently sit fifth in the NYC local rider standings and 86th in the world.

We've raised $11,615 as a 10-year combined total, a tidy sum after participating, volunteering and helping to organize events over that time in both Los Angeles and NYC.

Thank you in advance for everyone's generosity this year, over the past decade. It means a lot to me!

On Sunday the 22nd of May 2022, I'm riding my modified Triumph Thruxton in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride here in NYC with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men's mental health resources on behalf of Movember.

Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I'm asking you to join me in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.

10 years ... $10K raised

Saturday 9th

Our DGR campaign for 2022 hit a emotional high last night, in no small part due to the generosity of family, friends and colleagues ... thanks to a client and close friend, who wishes to remain anonymous, we have reached two milestones.

We surpassed our 2022 goal of $1500, hitting $1602 before the stroke of midnight. This also put us past the $10K combined mark, a tidy sum after participating, volunteering and helping to organize events for the past decade in both Los Angeles and NYC.

Thank you in advance for everyone's generosity over that time.

Thanks to all of my First Sponsors

Sunday 27th

Thanks go out to my first two sponsors for 2022, my cousin (on my wife's side) Tony Nelson, who has supported me for several years in raising money through the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. And my brother-in-law Paul Archer, who reached out from Victoria, BC, Canada to help out yet again. Add to that my Mum, my friend Philippe Dahn of Beringer Brakes USA fame, and my friend/colleague Jenn Geisser from NBC Universal.

My goal this year is $1500, or more, to put me past the $10K mark overall ... a tidy sum after participating, volunteering and helping to organize events for the past decade, here in New York City and in Los Angeles.

Thank you in advance for everyone's generosity over that time.
