On May 23, hundreds of thousands of classic and vintage-style motorcycle riders from more than 700 cities will wear their most elegant ensemble and travel to the annual Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) to raise funds and raise awareness for the prostate cancer research and men’s mental health. .
Here at Metro Manila, thousands of riders have joined our DGR motorcycle rally / parade to support this cause since 2014. This year, as we continue to navigate our new reality and the challenges of the pandemic , Metro Manila participants are encouraged to go solo until they comply with local restrictions on social distancing and health policies. But that doesn’t mean it’s any less fun.
There will be two exciting components to this year’s event: the Shoot-Tag-Ride-Repeat (STRR) challenge for riders in the morning, where participants are encouraged to stop at the stalls / partner establishments , take selfies and post to IG for the chance to win amazing awards from the official partners of DGR Manila 2021.
There’s also the Ride Solo, Party Together; is a virtual event in the afternoon that will be broadcast live from the showroom of official partner Triumph Motorcycles Philippines from 3pm to 4pm. In addition to looking back at previous DGR rallies in Manila and talking to industry special guests, organizers will also be handing out prizes to the winners of our Shoot-Tag-Ride-Repeat (STRR) challenge.
This year, the overall goal is to raise $ 7 million (about 334.5 million PHP) for prostate cancer research and male mental health initiatives on behalf of the official charity partner, the Movember Foundation. Along with The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, the foundation is dedicated to addressing some of the biggest health issues facing men around the world.
