We had a great time at AKS’ 10th Annual Shanghai Cup! Held on March 17-18 2018 at the T98 Oasis Soccer Center in Pudong, 60 teams from Thailand, Hong Kong, Beijing, Xiamen and other cities across China competed. This year, Manchester City Football Club from the England Premier League cooperated as professional club sponsor. As community partner, Xiersen was able to meet many attendees and share how we are involved in helping improve the condition of special education in China.
One participating player from Beijing sported his AWare sleeves and exclaimed proudly how happy he was to wear something that connected him with his younger brother with special needs, who also attended. We were touched by the positive response we received from families based in Shanghai and beyond!
A special thanks to AKS and event sponsors Hays, Adidas and Jiahui Health.
Please mark your calendar for the following event, coming up soon!
