Sean Edwards Foundation and Peace and Sport team up


The Sean Edwards Foundation and Peace in Sport have partnered up in time for the Sean Edwards Foundation Memorial Bike Ride in Monaco tomorrow (Tuesday). The ride around the Formula 1 circuit at 9am will be promting the message of peace through sport via motor sport. 

Drivers/riders taking part include Jenson Button, David Coulthard, Brendon Hartley, Maro Engel, Francesco Castellacci, Chris Buncombe, Russell Carty, Marc Raquil, Randy de Puniet, Adrien Maré and Jean François Tordo. 

Hall of Fame charity partner the Sean Edwards Foundation focuses on raising safety awareness in motor sport. The not-for-profit organization was born out of sadness after Sean was tragically killed in Australia while coaching a rookie driver. If there was more focus on safety his death may well have been avoided. 

Peace and Sport is a Monaco-based organization which promotes sport as a tool for peace. It was founded by Joël Bouzou in 2007 and is overseen by Prince Albert II of Monaco.
