Phoenix area video including gentlewomen riders (story here)
We’re asking all our friends to share this video and share widely by liking, and promoting it with this hashtag: #dprdapperchallenge
Putting the fun in fundraising for a good cause, classic and vintage motorcyclists from around the world have ridden on the last Sunday in September since 2012 to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.” In the US alone, DGR has raised 24.5 million dollars over the last 8 years. Men’s Health Issues addressed by the DGR are:
*MENTAL HEALTH* *SUICIDE PREVENTION*
*PROSTATE CANCER* *TESTICULAR CANCER*
One of DGR’s primary concerns this year, due to COVID-19, is the effect of social isolation on mental health. Studies show those who are socially connected in a positive way share a better outlook for well-being and mental health.
Because of COVID-19, the worldwide 2020 DGR ride – on September 27 – will be different this year. Everyone will ride alone but share it virtually as a way of riding alone but together.
To promote this, the DGR challenged riders from around the world to submit a video highlighting the 2020 theme: “Riding Solo Together.” Randy Anagnostis and I put together a team of riders and produced this video as part of the DGR 2020 challenge contest.
Our Phoenix area video is now submitted (thanks to Randy for his filming, editing, organizing, and original music score). Thanks also to the riders, to Kyle (Eyes Across the Sky) for the drone photography, to Chris and his partners at Eleven 10 Moto Garage, and to Paul and partners at Phoenix Triumph.… read more...
