“Working with the Race for Water Foundation gives me a feeling of doing something useful for the community. I wanted to do that for a long time and I really enjoy it.”

Peter Charaf: It was destiny

Peter Charaf is the Foundation’s tall and smiling media guy, working with us for the past two years. He makes videos, takes pictures, and communicates through visuals. “I’m the one who tells the story,” says Peter. He trained as a physical therapist, but never worked as one. “Since I was 13, all I’ve wanted to do is make movies,” he says.

Peter explains that there’s more than one way to tell a story: through music, film, art…Peter does a bit of everything. “I think everything happens for a reason,” he tells us. After making movies about freeriding for several years, Peter saw a help wanted ad that changed his life: “Seeking a photographer and videographer for an expedition focusing on ocean pollution.” Peter says, “That meeting with Marco was like a whole new world opening up. I knew that we were going to do something great together.” Race for Water’s cause is dear to Peter: “It’s obvious that the planet isn’t doing well. Working with the Race for Water Foundation gives me a feeling of doing something useful for the community. I wanted to do that for a long time and I really enjoy it.”
