Land Bank of Taiwan and Taiwan Foundation for Rare Disorders co-hosted the 2022 Rare Disease Day Badminton Event, “I'm Here to Love Land and Stand Up for Rare Diseases - Badminton Camp”.

In order to let the patients with rare diseases enjoy badminton, the Bank and Taiwan Foundation for Rare Disorders co-hosted a charity event called “I'm Here to Love Land and Stand Up for Rare Diseases - 2022 Badminton Camp” on the eve of Rare Diseases Day.
The event was held in the afternoon of February 19 at the Bank's badminton court. The opening ceremony was hosted by the Bank's Executive Vice President, Mr. Hsueh-Chih Tseng and the founder of the Taiwan Foundation for Rare Disorders, Ms. Li-Yin Chen.  Many of the patients that attended the event were playing badminton for the first time ever. They were very excited to meet with the Tokyo Olympic Doubles Gold Medalists, Chi-Lin Wang and Yang Lee, as well as our coaching team. The event not only allowed the patients to enjoy badminton, but also helped them to learn the spirit of the players to fight hard on the court, which greatly boosted the patients’ self-confidence.


The Bank usually holds the annual summer badminton and tennis camps for the public. Unfortunately, the Bank was unable to hold the camps last year due to the pandemic, but the Bank did not forget its original intention of giving back to the community by holding online and on-site "I'm Here for Badminton" and a series of public education activities to promote badminton to different places, including high school, junior high school, elementary school and disadvantaged groups. The Bank's efforts to promote badminton and tennis to the community have been fulfilled its corporate social responsibility and have been greatly appreciated by the public.
 

For 13 consecutive years, the Bank has been awarded the Sports Activist Awards by the Ministry of Education in the categories of Sponsorship Award Gold Class, Long Term Sponsorship Award and Gold Promotion Award. The Bank has been actively engaged in the training for athletes in various fields over the years and has achieved excellent results. For example, two members of the badminton team, Chi-Lin Wang and Yang Lee, won the 2020BWF Grand Final champion and 3 champions in 2 stations for Super Series (1000) in 2021. They also won the gold medal in men's doubles in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which is the first medal in the ball game category and the first gold medal in the Olympics for Taiwan. En-Shou Liang, a reserve member of the tennis team, also won the doubles championship at the 2021 WTA Women's Tennis Tour (Charleston, USA), which is a great honor for our country.
