It’s time to change the way men deal with mental health, especially depression and suicide, and the big evil of prostate cancer. 5 x men in NZ today will be diagnosed with it. 5 x more tomorrow.

Roll in the DGR.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) is a global charity in partnership with Movember Foundation New Zealand that aims to raise awareness for men’s mental health and to eliminate prostate cancer. It takes place on the same day all over the world, and of course we here in NZ get to kick it all off.

This year it’s Sunday the 24th September and Cubro are proud to get behind two of our team members in this magnanimous charity event.


“My name is Darren and I have the privilege of being one of the principal organisers of the Tauranga Ride, second year in a row. Not only that, but I am fortunate to have my workplace – Cubro – be in complete support of what we are trying to achieve too. Our Leadership team believe in our Cubro values of family, compassion and giving and understand the efforts and time it takes to get something like this off the ground. Huge thanks to them for raising the awareness of these issues too. I am humbled that they even went as far to suggest this social media drive (involving all of our amazing Marketing Team!) to help spread the word too!

So with all of Cubro’s support for Todd and I, we and the rest of the DGR riders are determined to make a difference. Please join us in donating to this worthy cause below!”


“Hi, my name is Todd. I’m just your typical bloke living the dream in Tauranga.

Darren was telling the Cubro team that he is a principal organiser for the The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride in Tauranga, New Zealand and I felt it was something that I wanted to get behind. The DGR is a great way for us to start talking about some of life’s more serious issues like prostate cancer and mental health.

I’m sure we all know someone who is affected by these issues and this bike ride is a great way to raise funds and awareness across the globe to support them. So it’s time to suit up and unite towards a good cause…”
