MISSION & HISTORY.
The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride (DGR) and Movember are working to tackle men's health issues. One element the can improve men's mental health is their social connections: whether a friend, family member, partner, or colleague.
In June 2020 Movember and DGR launched the Social Connections Challenge, a two-year initiative looking for innovative ideas from across Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the USA, and the UK to develop, pilot, and evaluate programs that will increase levels of social connectivity, life satisfaction and mental wellbeing of riders.
We submitted an idea!
Our Project Team Building idea was one of 18 selected to move on to the development phase. We have spent the last few months building capacity, assembling the right team of people, engaging and conducting research with our target population, design the initiative, and create a detailed plan that can be rolled out and piloted. We have submitted our pilot project plan to Movember, and come April/May, we'll know if our project will get the green light to go to pilot.
