Support Kevin for the 2019 motionball Marathon Of Sport Hamilton

Dear friends and family,

On June 22 I am participating in an all-day fundraiser called the Marathon of Sport. Throughout the day I will be competing alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of sports such as basketball, soccer, flag football, ultimate frisbee, and bench ball. All funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. You can help support our team’s modest $2,000 fundraising goal by making a small donation.

Founded in 1997, the Special Olympics Canada Foundation was created to financially support the strategic objectives of Special Olympics Canada. The foundations main goals are to:
1. Increase program participation of individuals with an intellectual disability;
2. Increase recruitment of volunteers, including trained coaches; and
3. Ensure the financial integrity of the Special Olympics Canada movement for generations to come

Please help by supporting our fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift makes a significant difference in the life of a son, daughter, parent, friend or neighbour. Moreover, the impact of your donation goes well beyond one individual - entire communities grow stronger. No matter the size of your contribution, rest assured your involvement will help fund programs which enrich the lives of Canadians with an intellectual disability.

Please consider a donation of as little as $20, or any other amount. All gifts, great or small, help. I appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

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.
