The Death Toll In The Christchurch Mosque Attacks Has Risen To 50
By /

In the wake of the deadly shootings on Friday at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, athletes from Special Olympics New Zealand and Special Olympics UAE, along with leaders of Special Olympics, gathered today at the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi in a show of compassion and unity.

More than 100 mourners processed quietly into the mosque, then formed a circle and held hands in its vast courtyard before sunset. Special Olympics Chairman Timothy Shriver made remarks before a long moment of silence.

“As we try to overcome our own brokenness from the chaos in the world we must remember that hate cannot defeat hate, only love can do that,” Shriver said. “I am so comforted being here among the forces of healing, the forces of understanding, the forces of compassion and the forces of tolerance. The world needs to know these forces are more powerful than anything.”

Special Olympics New Zealand has a delegation of 64 athletes and coaches in the UAE for the Special Olympics World Games. After they learned of the deadly attacks this morning, the grieving New Zealand delegation sought to comfort one another and to show solidarity with Muslims worldwide. Special Olympics World Games organizers also decided to hold a moment of silence before each event at the competition today (SAT 16 March) in a broad display of unity.

Referencing the tragedy in his home country, Special Olympics New Zealand basketball athlete Carlton Vivian, who is from Christchurch, said, at the Grand Mosque, “These people didn’t deserve this, nobody deserves this.”

Located on the second floor at 20 Hudson Yards, Mack Weldon’s shop features the brand’s assortment of elevated menswear essentials including underwear, socks, shirts, sweats, swim, activewear, and accessories.

To date, Mack Weldon has grown its business primarily via mackweldon.com and a handful of thoughtful selling partnerships including The Shop at Equinox, J. Crew, Todd Snyder, and Nordstrom. “In many ways, Hudson Yards is the ideal location for our first store,” said Brian Berger, Founder and CEO of Mack Weldon. “Not only do we get to be part of the most exciting development project in recent history, thousands of our current and potential customers will be passing through Hudson Yards daily. This aligns perfectly with our brand’s mission to create a more convenient customer experience, and is a unique opportunity to activate Mack Weldon in the physical world while we test and learn for future investment.”

The store, designed in collaboration with Fred Tang & Associates, was conceived as a destination for shoppers to discover Mack Weldon product and quickly stock up on brand staples. Once inside, customers are invited to learn more about Mack Weldon on tablets displaying information on the brand’s innovative fabrics, loyalty program, and try-on guarantee. The shop is anchored by a…
