Ahead of the second Formula 1 Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix, IWC Schaffhausen hosted the IWC Chrono Challenge in collaboration with the Miami-based nonprofit charity Dibia DREAM. The organization works with youth in underserved communities using sports to teach them life skills and mentorship. Competing in the competition was seven-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, who was joined by Hollywood actor James Marsden and former professional football player Antrel Rolle. Actor Simu Liu, American Olympic skateboarder Jagger Eaton and Dibia DREAM founder and CEO Brandon Okpalobi competed on the opposing team.
“I played a little [basketball] growing up in high school for fun, but never competitively. It is always a good time to get out here and [compete] for a charity and with friends. It was a good time,” Marsden shared. “There is a pulse to the city and a liveliness where you find yourself having more fun than you anticipated coming here. There is a great spirit to Miami, and it is always fun to be here and get wrapped up in it.”
