Spokesman Stephen Bronholm says they have already raised money raised $US2.25m from more than 55,600 riders on 580 registered rides in 95 countries.
Last year the event raised more than $US3.5m for prostate cancer and men’s mental health issues through the Movember Foundation.
DGR spokesman Stephen Bronholm says funds raised for men’s mental health this year will double to 20% with the remainder for prostate cancer research.
The 2017 DGR target is about 70,000 riders in more than 600 cities and 95 countries, raising about $US 5 million for charity.
Registrations are still open for the DGR event next Sunday (September 24, 2017) and there is a host of incentive prizes on offer for fundraisers, including Hedon helmets, Triumph jackets, Zenith watches and more.
