The Mail Company sponsors for the second year the “Team Bonache”, which participates in Uniraid 2018

Víctor Calvo and Philippe Castellví, two university students of 20 years, are already completing the first of the seven stages in which they will cross from north to south a part of the Moroccan desert. Víctor and Philipe are members of “Team Bonache”, a team co-sponsored by The Mail Company, and one of more than 50 teams from all parts of Spain, participating in Uniraid 2018, a raid that reaches its eighth edition and that began on February 24 and will end on March 4.

Uniraid is a solidarity adventure for students between 18 and 28 years old that encourages entrepreneurship and teamwork. Its participants must complete seven stages navigating with a roadbook and avoiding all kinds of obstacles, challenges and tests. The vehicle must be a car with more than 20 years and all the participants must deliver at least 30 kg of solidarity material in different desert towns.

In this edition the “Team Bonache” carries a solidarity load of about 200 k. of material. In addition to school and computer equipment, Víctor and Phil have, in their Peugeot 205, bath gels for children and adults, six boxes of winter clothes and 1,000 reflective bracelets contributed by The Mail Company, which will help to reduce the high rate of abuse that occur at night on local Moroccan roads due to lack of lighting.
