NEWS | 26/01/2021The alliance supports the wheelchair basketball schools for young people with disabilities.
The alliance between the two organisations was first signed in 2016 and its goal is to ensure the sustainability of the wheelchair basketball social sports schools run by the Real Madrid Foundation in San Sebastián de los Reyes, Getafe and Madrid for children with physical and mental disabilities who would otherwise be unable to enjoy team sports.
Álvaro Arbeloa thanked UPS for their support and paid particular attention to, “the support of their corporate volunteers, who after so many years are now an essential part of the project, setting up wheelchairs and helping to deliver kit. More than a sponsor, they're an ally”.
Elisabeth Rodríguez: "UPS moves the world"
"At UPS, we move the world to deliver what's important. With the deliveries we provide for the Real Madrid Foundation, even outside Spain, we know we're helping to build a better future and we have faith that together, we can keep working to improve the lives of the children who enjoy sports at the Foundation's schools as well as their families".
UPS' collaboration covers the shipping of Foundation parcels throughout the world, as well as the participation of the company's corporate volunteer scheme in running the social sports projects, particularly in the aforementioned schools.
