2016 is a year of many anniversaries in Poland. First of all, it is the 1050th anniversary of Poland’s baptism, but also such national anniversaries as the 360th anniversary of the Lwów Oath made by King Jan Kazimierz and the 60th anniversary of the Oath of the Polish Nation made at Jasna Góra.
For many years ASA has supported the Polish Nationwide Olympics of the Universities of the Third Age and the Senior Citizens' Organizations.
The annual Senior Citizens’ Olympics in Łazy is not just a sports competition. It is also integration, singing, dancing and experiencing joyful moments together. It is also about taking care of a good health condition, which is a value forming a part of ASA’s pro-health policy. For us, health is the most important.
It is commonly known that exercising means health. Yet, almost half of the population of Poles, in particular middle aged people, are not physically active on a regular basis. We spend time at home, in front of our TV sets or computers. Several hours a day spent in a car or at a desk at work is not good for our health, either.
The problem of insufficient physical activity refers also to young people and even to children. If we add stress and an unbalanced diet leading to overweight and obesity to insufficient physical activity, we can be certain to have some health problems.
For two days, on 8 and 9 November, the Exhibition and Congress Centre in Opole was transformed into a fairy land for children and their conscious parents. The KIDS & FUN EXPO was held there, and ASA was also invited.
The KIDS & FUN Expo is the only event in our region addressed to parents expecting a baby and those with young kids.
Bringing together exhibitors related to the children's products sector, and not only, the KIDS & FUN event meets the diversified needs of parents.
For many years, Głubczyce has been a badminton training centre well known in Poland and abroad. ASA, who has its registered office in Głubczyce, is a socially responsible company and eagerly supports local initiatives, therefore we have become the sponsor of the Amateur Badminton Tournament for the third time. The ASA CUP Tournament was held on 10 October 2015 in the hall of the local Municipal Board of Education, Culture and Sports [ZOKIS].
The fifth edition of the "Healthy Wadowice" event was held on 13 September 2015 in Wadowice.

It was also possible to have an ophthalmologic examination for glaucoma or AMD.
