The Foundation supports kids living in families affected by mental illness. The program provides recreational, educa- tional camps and other activities, giving kids a break in a fun, positive and safe environment.

This year Bonds Transport took out the team winner’s tro- phy with AGS World Transport a close second. In third place, just behind, was a team from DHL Global Forwarding.
