Galaxy Entertainment Group has donated MOP$100,000 to Sheng Kung Hui Macau Social Services Coordination Office (SKH) and co-launched a home exercise equipment subsidy scheme that will support around 150 local families.
The initiative is in support of children with special-education needs, helping families to set up an exercise environment at home so that they can remain physically active, maintaining their overall health and well-being. Equipment will be purchased, such as yoga mats, stability balls, resistance bands, exercise bikes and wooden balance boards.
To demonstrate proper use of the equipment, GEG and SKH invited a professional fitness trainer to film a set of tutorials.
In addition, the scheme also provides game consoles and software for the families to borrow to allow them to exercise in a fun way.
GEG has been working with a variety of organizations to enhance community engagement. The GEG Youth Achievement Program (“YAP”), co-organised by GEG and the Macau Management Association, is holding a contest that asks for submission from youth of creative arts such as posters, poetries and comics related to the fight against COVID-19. Voting for the first batch of the contest submissions is open until March 15, followed by the second batch starting from March 16. The winner will be picked according to the number of “likes” received on both YAP’s WeChat official account “GEG_YAP_MMA” and Facebook fan page “GEG Youth Achievement Program”.
