Academic Solutions sponsors the Panda Raid!

350km. 300 Fiat Pandas. 2 Goals.

(1) To cross the desert from Madrid to Marrakech.

(2) To raise money for a new school.

In March 2017, 300 Fiat Pandas set out on an intrepid expedition as part of the Panda Raid. Their goal? To cross 350km of treacherous terrain from Madrid to Marrakech. 

Academic Solutions was the proud sponsor of Fiat Panda 222 driven by brother-sister team Mauro & Ana Rilova. The adventure was the culmination of a life-long dream for the Spanish duo who completed the race in 180th place.  

All proceeds raised by the racers goes to the Good Planet foundation to build a new school for children between the ages of 3-6 in Ait Ahmed Agadir province, Morocco. As a study abroad provider sustained by education, we give back to educational efforts around the globe.
