AXA Mansard, a member of the AXA Group, sponsored the just-concluded Special Olympics World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi, Chief Executive Officer, AXA Mansard Health Plc, Mr Tope Adeniyi has said.

In a statement, Adeniyi said the  the Special Olympics World Games are held every two years.

He said Austria hosted the Winter Games in 2017, where 22 athletes represented Nigeria, winning 12 Gold and 10 Silver medals.

According to him, the Special Olympics World Summer Games  were the largest sports and humanitarian event in the world this year.

He said: “The need to show our concern and support towards children and young adults that are physically challenged cannot be over-emphasised seeing they have very little opportunity to participate in organised athletic events. Sponsoring the iconic event is our way of ultimately contributing towards the mental and physical wellness of these children.

“While the games serve to promote the concept of involvement in physical activity and other opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities, it also gives an opportunity for children and young adults all over the world to bond and create memories that will last a lifetime, while inspiring them to push beyond the barrier of intellectual disabilities.

“At AXA Mansard, we remain resolute in making the world a healthier place, as such, we throw our weight behind initiatives that promotes mental and physical wellness in the society.”
