"I found out about the ride by being in the bike community," she said.
"I wanted to get involved because it's a cool event, and obviously it's a good cause, we have a lot of men come through the barber shop.
"It's supporting men's health and most importantly mental health, which is a problem in this area so it's a good cause."
Sam will join the Orange ride which is one of nearly 650 rides being held across the world.
The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride organisation hopes to raise over $7 million for research into prostate cancer and other men's health issues.
With just over a month until the event they have already raised nearly $1 million from 26,000 registered riders worldwide.
Bathurst locals are helping out as well by contributing to Sam's donation drive.
"People are already starting to donate and we are donating $2 from every beard, moustache or shave service here at Bathurst Barbers," she said.
The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride launches on September 29. To contribute to Sam's cause visit Bathurst Barbers on the corner of Keppel and Bentinck streets or follow this link.
