I little while back, we learned that Mens Mental Health statistics where seriously under estimated. In Australia, national suicide figures show that, on average, six men take their own lives every day. EVERY DAY. Another 10,000 attempt suicide annually. However, new research shows emergency services attended more than 30,000 cases of men who contemplated or attempted suicide between 2015-2016. THIRTY THOUSAND... 3 x more than once thought.
This is fucked, plain and simple. This shouldnt be happening. Both Men and Women need more support to help get back on track. Communities, Tribes and simply knowing that there are people that care can play a massive part in getting those struggling back on track. This is something we are passionate about.
We're going big with DGR 2019. We've set a $25kAUD Team Target to help the cause. Rally the troops with us, encourage those that havent taken part in previous years to jump on board this year, spread the word and raise awareness of the issues at hand and raise funds that will go towards making a positive impact on peoples lives.
How can you help?
1. Set up your DGR account.
2. Join the team page: https://www.gentlemansride.com/team/KustomKommune
3. Raise awareness & Raise Funds.
We'll announce a pre-meet leaving from Kustom Kommune shortly.
On Sunday the 29th of September, we will don our finest attire with our fellow men and women across the globe to join the fight with The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride to raise awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health. But before we press our tweed and polish our boots, we need you to donate what you can for this meaningful cause and help us reach our goal.
For your uncles, your brothers, your fathers and friends. Donate what you can, for their lives need not end.
