As Monaco Life reported earlier this month, a world first sporting event will take place in Monaco on June 4, thanks to an initiative by Princess Charlene. The Riviera Water Bike Challenge is the first relay race of its kind on water, covering 21 kilometers between Nice and Monaco using Schiller S1 water bikes.
The charity challenge is in support of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, and all funds raised, between a gala dinner tonight at the Monaco Yacht Club and by the first edition of the Riviera Water Bike Challenge in June, will help finance the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation’s project in Burkina Faso.
At this evening’s gala fundraiser, under the High Patronage of Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene, there will be two auctions. First, guests will have the opportunity to bid for a place on a specific team to compete in the Riviera Water Bike Challenge. In total there will be 10 teams, each made up of 2 celebrity sports personalities and 2 amateurs.
In addition to auctioning off spots in the race to the highest bidder, there will be a Riviera Water Bike Challenge Live Auction comprising 8 Lots:
As the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation points out, the Riviera Water Bike Challenge “fits the philosophy and values” of the charitable association: “team spirit, self-respect and respect of others, discipline and appreciation of hard work.
“The choice of a relay race is of utmost importance as it is the embodiment of mutual aid and teamwork.”
