The Crossing: Calvi – Monaco Water Bike Challenge
The Crossing: Calvi – Monaco Water bike Challenge takes place on 12 and 13 September 2020 and is a charitable cause to raise awareness of the various programmes run by the Foundation as well as to raise funds to continue to deliver on its vision to save lives and change lives.
The Crossing challenges our celebrity athletes and sportsmen to travel from Calvi to Monaco in the shortest possible time by water bike, from the port of Calvi to Monaco. Two teams of 4 internationally renowned athletes will take turns at sea for nearly 24 hours over a distance of 180km. The arrival is scheduled for 13 September at the Yacht Club de Monaco.
Our Foundation’s Efforts
The “Learn to Swim” and “Water Safety” programmes have been implemented around the world. These programmes are aimed in particular at children who are disadvantaged or at risk of drowning due to their environment. The Foundation’s actions are also based on the values of sport such as discipline and team spirit. The “Sport & Education” programme is based on sports activities in order to contribute to the well-being and development of children.
Since the creation of the Princess Charlene Foundation in 2012, more than 730,000 people, particularly children, have benefited from these three programmes in 34 countries.
Thank you in advance for supporting our Foundation. We look forward to honouring and acknowledging your contribution as we aim to reach 2m children, expand into Africa, improve our environment and facilities, and teach underprivileged kids to swim.
