18 March 2012 - Nanyang MBA Olympics

Nanyang MBA Olympics: London Olympic, MBA Olympics, Special Olympics Sin...:

Forget the Year of the Dragon. This is the year for Olympics. In a couple of weeks, we are going to kick off with our MBA Olympics 2012, so hope you all have formed your teams and are getting ready for the games!

As mentioned earlier, MBA Olympics was started last year by the CSR club of Nanyang MBA. This year it is going to be a joint event between CSR club and Women In Business (WIB) of the Nanyang MBA. The aim of this event is to provide all MBA students in Singapore to get together and have some fun together while raising awareness and funds for a worthy cause. Last year funds were raised for Cambodia Trust but this year we thought we would go for a local organisation and after some searching, came upon Special Olympics Singapore.

This is a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to providing sports training and competitions for persons with intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to develop physical fitness, self-esteem and confidence, and become productive and respected members of society.

To add a bit of twist to the event, we have planned a few exhibition matches with teams from Special Olympics Singapore AND they have been training, which is more than I can say for our students (sorry guys, don't kick me from the team).
