For 2018, the MYS organisers give a donation of €57,000 to Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (AMM) for supporting research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
If the MYS has established itself as an important economic and media force for the Principality of Monaco, the MYS Organisers also defends the ethical and human values shared by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
The MYS indeed supports the Monaco-based Charity since its creation in 2001 by parents of children suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. AMM is today considered as the most proactive charity that has enabled the scientific and medical research to make significant progress over the last decade, notably with the tremendous gains in genetic therapy.
The substantial advancement is made possible with the world-renowned fundraising charity auction, Only Watch. Founded in 2005 by Luc Pettavino, President of AMM, and supported by the MYS Organisers from the very start, the biennial event of one-off luxury timepieces has raised over EUR 35 million in 7 editions to finance numerous scientific and medical research programmes.
