Support Katie for the 2019 motionball Marathon Of Sport Toronto

As many of you know I have been involved with "motionball" for many years and this will be my 7th year participating in the Toronto 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. Special Olympics provides opportunities for over 47,000 Canadians with intellectual disabilities to experience the transformative power of sport. Today, motionball proudly hosts over 40 events across Canada and has delivered over $10.8 million to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

On May 25, all funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. Throughout the day, I will be competing in a variety of sports alongside local Special Olympics athletes. As a Phys Ed and Special Education teacher, I see firsthand the benefit of inclusion and equal opportunity within sport.

By making a donation to motionball, you'll be supporting athletes across Canada and together we can level the playing field for thousands of Canadians with intellectual disabilities.

Thank you very much for your support,  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.
