CHARRIOL supports WorldRiderZ , an organization that raises awareness around diseases related to chronic renal failure and provides related audio-visual campaigns.
“A dad on a mission” … for Stephane Etienne, merely supporting his child, affected by chronic kidney failure, was simply not enough. Stephane campaigns to share prevention messages and help advance treatments for this disease. He leverages the platform of sporting challenges (bike, ski, car, bike, triathlon) and prominent athletes to help achieve his goal.
In just three years, his journey has been turned into a television programme broadcast around the world by the Discovery Channel; WorldRiderZ.
Just like the regional French Olympic Committee, CHARRIOL is joining this adventure on the eve of new challenges that include the Rally Raid Dakar 2014 (Argentina, Bolivia, Peru), the Marathon des Sables, the ultimate Watch Tour de France 2014 Time Trial, as well as challenges in Formula 1, triathlon or extreme skiing.
Why CHARRIOL and WorldRiderZ
CHARRIOL is an independent brand, both financially and creatively. It reflects the vision and spirit of our founder, Philippe Charriol. Commenting on Charriol’s involvement, Philippe states:
“Stephane Etienne and I share the same values: passion, pleasure, stress, a desire to overcome challenges and meet them assertively. Just like the desire to share, the notion of respect – for people, traditions products or precision, seen in craftsmanship and assembly, affects quality, whether in relationships or timepieces.”
He continues: “We all wish to explore new horizons and share new visions so that each one of us can find their way and blossom, individually. Stéphane’s tireless commitment is helping children to do just this.”
