The ICSC Foundation is proud to honor two more shopping center developers with Community Service Awards. The ICSC Foundation awards shopping centers from around the globe for their charitable efforts with the Community Support Awards.
In the Asia Pacific, the Link Management Limited, based out of Kowloon, Hong Kong, won for their “The Link Community Sports Academy” campaign that promoted and raised awareness of the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. The Link established the sports academies, with the aim of fostering a sense of teamwork, community, health and social inclusion throughout each community that a Link shopping center is located in. The sports academy provided free sports training to more than 1,500 participants, including those with disabilities. In addition to the award, the ICSC Foundation will contribute $5,000 USD to the Hong Kong Blind Sports Federation which will use the contribution to sponsor their blind soccer team.
In the Middle East & North Africa, Arabian Centres, in Saudi Arabia, won for their “Fighting Breast Cancer” campaign. Through their partnership with the Zahra Breast Cancer Association, Arabian Centres set up diagnosis booths at each of their malls, giving women throughout Saudi Arabia access to early detection testing, free of charge. The centres also launched a pink-themed campaign to raise awareness and provide crucial information that can help save lives. In addition to the award, the ICSC Foundation will contribute $5,000 USD to the Zahra Breast Cancer Association.
