Support Katie for the 2019 motionball Marathon Of Sport Toronto

Friends and Family,

For the fourth year in a row, I will be participating in an all-day fundraiser called the motionball Marathon of Sport. Marathon of Sport Toronto is part of a larger national movement called motionball for Special Olympics, a non-profit organization that empowers young Canadians to be leaders in their communities, raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics so that individuals with intellectual disabilities can lead happier, healthier lives.

Those who know me well know I am a huge advocate for participation in sport and physical activity for all individuals, regardless of physical or intellectual ability. I have also been lucky enough to see and hear firsthand the impact that Special Olympics programs have on the athletes that participate in them.

Please considering helping me continue to support and raise awareness for motionball and Special Olympics. If you'd like donate, please click the link below.

Thank you,

Katie

HOW CAN YOUR DOLLARS HELP?

motionball for Special Olympics is a registered not-for-profit corporation, raising money for Special Olympics programs across Canada. 70% of the funds we raise are distributed to programs in the province where they are raised, with the remainder going to the long-term funding of programs through the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

While COVID-19 has affected us all, Special Olympics athletes are feeling the effects of this global pandemic more than most. Sport programs are suspended, competitions have been cancelled, and many athletes remain stuck indoors, at a greater risk of contracting COVID-19 than the general population. Now more than ever, the role of motionball in these athlete’s lives is incredibly important. As one of the Special Olympics’ largest funding partners in Canada, motionball has donated over $13M to date. motionball supporters are dedicated to ensuring that every local club and program can return stronger than before, and that no Special Olympics athlete is left behind.
