It was not a surprised, but it has not been easy to raise money for our project. With the crisis, most of the companies we contacted said they did not have as much budget as previous years to put into charity and sponsoring.
However, we have always persevered and believed in our project. And we start to get some result from our doggedness! And few days ago, we received some very good news: a French bank of the group Arkea (Crédit Mutuel de Bretagne) chose us to join their team of 7 crews, paying us our inscription in the raid !
We have funded more than half of the budget, and we can really imagine us at the start of the race! It is so exciting... Now, we are going to be very busy, still looking for sponsors but also planning some events once we are back to school in January... We cannot wait for it !
