Mark Hawwa’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride renews its agreement for Triumph Motorcycles to remain the main sponsor of the DGR for the coming five years.
Triumph Motorcycles will continue as the main sponsor of the annual Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride for the next five years, per the renewal of the sponsorship agreement between the two. Triumph has been the main sponsor of the DGR since 2014, helping founder Mark Hawwa develop the event into the global experience that it is today.
The DGR was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa in 2012, to raise funds for Movember, bringing awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health, by uniting classic and vintage style motorcycle riders, old and new all around the world.
“In 2014 when we first partnered with Triumph Motorcycles, I was incredibly excited. They are the only motorcycle manufacturer that I felt perfectly fit with The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. We’ve done some wonderful things since then; together we have been able to reward some of our top and most dedicated fundraisers with brand new bikes from the modern classic range and built the custom one-of-one 2021 Triumph Thruxton RS. Today, 8 years later as we announce the 5-year continuation of this partnership, I am even more excited than I was in 2014 because, with the next 5 years, I know that we can do even more together with the goal of raising funds and awareness of men’s health.” – Mark Hawwa. Founder/Director of The DGR.
Since its first year in 2012, the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride and its global community have raised almost $30 million dollars for men’s health. The DGR currently operates in over 700 cities and 114 countries around the world.
