Local “Big boys” ride vs Big C


TODAY, May 23, motorcycle-riding men (and women) in their formal attires group uniforms riding classic and vintage-style motorbikes in different parts of the world will ride for mental health.

The event, “The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride” (DGR), seeks to spread awareness on prostate cancer and men’s mental health.

Markfil Tersol, Gentleman’s Ride-Dagupan Group Ride organizer, said the May 23 event in Dagupan City will be one of 16 cities in the Philippines participating.

“We will be joining several countries worldwide in this event”, said Tersol

The Dagupan Group Ride will be a 20-kilometer ride from 8 a.m. starting from the CSI City Mall helipad through the Dagupan City downtown loop, onward to the Pangasinan Provincial Capitol and the Norseman Resort in Binmaley town using the Baywalk Road for a fellowship breakfast.

Tersol assured local governments will be observing health protocols to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

Earlier last week, Tersol said some 50 riders from Urdaneta City, Alaminos City, Alcala, Bayambang, Sual, Mangaldan, San Fabian, Manaoag, Sta Barbara, San Jacinto, and Dagupan City already registered.

Despite the event being primarily for men, Tersol said women may also join, provided they wear dapper clothing.

The DGR is a ten-year-old advocacy founded by Mark Hawwa in Sydney, Australia.

Since its inception, it has raised around USD 27.45 million funds for men’s health in 107 countries around the world.

In a report by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), prostate cancer comes as one of the top killers in men, after ischemic heart diseases. (Ahikam Pasioin)
