The Special Olympics is an international event bringing attention to the needs and interests of the two hundred million mentally challenged people around the world.
It was established to provide year-round sports training and athletic competitions in a variety of Olympic sports for people with intellectual disabilities.
This provides them opportunities to develop physical fitness, enhances their ability to more fully participate in society, boosts courage and provides personal pride and joy.
Their lives are further enriched in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympians and the broader community.
The Special Olympics 2012 Unity Fundraising Gala Dinner marked the first public showing of OMAS International S.A. since its acquisition by Ming Fung Jewellery in April 2012.
