The WORLDRIDERZ journey
Our journey was established to raise awareness and prevention for Chronic Kidney Disease and organ transplant through the staging of journeys around the world.
Its the story of Stephane, a 35-year-old father who has decided to say no to fatality. His life was shattered at his son Ilhan’s birth. He was born with severe kidney disease. It changed his whole life and prompted him to try and do something positive. In 2010 he created WorldRiderZ – an international programme for consciousness-raising of chronic kidney disease. With his friend Paul, they rode through a 25,000-km journey from Sydney to Paris and created a 6 part TV series, which was picked up by Discovery Channel. Confident with its explosive success, he will get back in the saddle on 1st July 2012 to repeat the feat on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean: Paris to Vancouver.
