On December 5, 2019, the 2019 International Special Olympics integration charity dinner (hereinafter referred to as "integration charity dinner") was held in Waldorf Hotel on the Bund of Shanghai. This is also after four-years, the fusion charity dinner party again came to Shanghai!

This integration charity dinner is hosted by China friendship and peace development foundation. No matter from the scale, organization and lineup are more than the previous ones. Dr. Tim Shriver, President of the International Special Olympics, Mr. Li Zhaoxing, former Minister of foreign affairs of China and Mr. Li Xikui, Secretary General of the Chinese people's Association for friendship with foreign countries, have come to Shanghai to attend the charity dinner.


"We have been working hard to promote convergence and encourage intellectual and non- intellectual people to engage in sports activities on the same venue, promote communication and understanding, simultaneous interpreting the concept of acceptance, tolerance and respect for mentally retarded people," said Dr. Tim Shriver, chairman of the International Special Olympics.


At the same time, members of the Special Olympics East Asia senior advisory committee, including Yao Ming, Yang Lan, Li Ning and Yang Yang, were also present. In the afternoon of that day, they held the 2019 annual working conference and held extensive discussions on the future development of the Special Olympics.

"We very much welcome Mr. Li Ning, Prince of gymnastics, Ms. Zhang Junting, a caring entrepreneur, and Mr. Li Ping to join the Special Olympics East Asia senior advisory committee. They will use their wisdom and resources to contribute to the promotion of the special Olympic movement. " Dr Tim Shriver said.


Li Na, the image ambassador of the Special Olympics, Zou Shiming, the former director of Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau, the current chairman of the Shanghai Special Olympics, Dr. Shi Derong, the global director of the Special Olympics, Wang Yihan, the badminton champion, Hu Xinger, the famous artist, and Zhu Changzheng, the director of Zhengshi technology foundation, also attended the charity dinner.

"Although I attended the fusion charity dinner for the first time, I was deeply moved by the inclusive spirit of the Special Olympics. In the big family of the Special Olympics, I was surprised by the talent of the special children. Especially the future artist Liu Mingkang of Yamaha, whose dream of music is as pure as a diamond, and his persistence of dream is as eternal as a diamond. Our society needs such an inclusive spirit. "Integration" makes our society more harmonious and our spiritual civilization to a higher level. " Zhu Changzheng, director of Zhengshi technology fund, said.


The dinner opened with performances by a group of 23 special Olympic mobilization and integration partners from Shanghai Jing'an Qihui school, Xuhui Dong Li Fengmei health school and Changning junior vocational school. Wearing Li Ning's latest sportswear, they brought the guests a wonderful T-stage show under the guidance of Han Yi, who is known as the "gold model godmother".

Self-confidence and happiness let the guests feel the warmth and strength brought by the integration activities.



Tonight, Liu Mingkang opened the finale of the party with a song "Romeo and Juliet". Under Liu Mingkang's affectionate interpretation, the notes of love linger in the meeting hall. Then, Liu Mingkang and pianist Liu Yuntian played a piano ensemble "wedding in a dream". At last, Liu Yuntian's solo Liuyang River adapted by Wang Jianzhong let the Chinese wind blow in the venue Liu Mingkang and Liu Yuntian sing out their love memories on the piano together.

As early as four years ago, in May 2015, the 2015 International Special Olympics integration charity dinner was held in Shanghai. On the Special Olympics stage, Liu Mingkang and song Siheng, a young pianist of our country, performed "memories of childhood", which surprised four people and the audience Liu Mingkang's excellent performance not only won the applause of the audience, but also shocked the president of the International Special Olympics, Dr. Tim Shriver. When Tim Shriver saw the weak and slightly shy child in front of him, he couldn't help praising Liu Mingkang. Liu Mingkang shows the world the unique talent of Chinese autistic children.


It was that year that China launched the first year of "integration" activities.

Liu Mingkang is lucky. On his way to success, he was supported by many social groups and caring people. As early as at the 2014 special care charity dinner, Yamaha, a giant musical instrument manufacturer in the world, paid attention to the Chinese genius. It is "integration" that makes Yamaha and Liu Mingkang hand in hand, which is exactly five years.


Liu Mingkang's success not only represents the spread of the Special Olympics spirit in China in the way of "integration", but also represents that China is gradually narrowing the distance with the developed countries in the field of helping special groups. "Integration" activities are widely covering more special groups.

There is still a long way to go in the future. There are many difficulties we need to overcome. But the Special Olympics spirit of equality and respect will still light our way forward like a beacon.

Let's hope that future artist Liu Mingkang of Yamaha will continue to write a splendid chapter that belongs to himself and the world!
