The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride, an international motorcycle ride for Classics, café racers, bobbers, trackers, customs, modern classics, classic scooters & undefinable 2/3 wheeled machines to raise awareness and finds for prostate cancer on September 28. The Milwaukee ride details are here, and there is a Facebook page.
On the surface that's two tings going for this event - motorcycles, and prostate cancer - but it ups the ante by making it a unique ride. Participants in the ride are called on to dress up - be dapper - on their bikes (vintage preferred).

|These are the types of vests that the event will help provide|
In partnership with FOX Sports Network (FSN), Dr. Lichtenberger, DVM, DACVECC and The MECA Foundation will host the 3rd annual MECA Vest A K-9 Fest Saturday, July 26th from 10am until 3pm at the Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals located in Greenfield, WI.
Last year over 1200 people attended the event in support of the MECA Foundation’s mission, which is to provide total wellness for Wisconsin police k-9's including veterinary care, financial support for police K-9's and K-9 protective vests.
Wisconsin has over 235 canine officers and most of them do not have protection. The average cost of a K-9 vest is $840. Each vest is bullet and stab proof and made of the same ballistic material as the human officer vest. The vest weights approximately 6 lbs. The vests do not inhibit the K-9's movement. The K-9's wear the vests in training exercises so they are ready and able to do their work while wearing the vest. A K-9 vest is not worn like a uniform, but rather only as needed. The K-9s' Handler will put the vest on the K-9 when there is an increased danger level.

|Buy a One World Futbol and they will donate one|
If you buy a soccer ball, or a futbol as the rest of the world calls it, why not get it from the One World Futbol Project who will in turn donate one to organizations working with youth in disadvantaged communities worldwide? You can also just purchase balls to donate directly to their network of organizations.

|Value, and care, for other men this year|
In our annual Men's Health Week post, we list the 7 top health concerns specific to men which include Suicide, Type 2 diabetes, Stroke, Chronic lower respiratory diseases, Accidents, Cancer, and #1 Heart disease. Use that post and its information as a way to see the signs not in yourself, but in others and if you see them help convince them, since men need convincing, to seek help in improving their health.
