Support Amy Matejcek for the 2019 motionball Marathon Of Sport Kelowna

On September 21, I am participating in an all-day fundraiser called the motionball Marathon of Sport. It is a sporting event 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. Each year Peter and I join a team, the past few years we have been proud to celebrate diversity in sport with The November Project!

Our family is so deeply committed to supporting Special Olympics. As a family with a child with an intellectual disability, having the option for her to play sport at a competitive level is such a gift. Thank you to all for recognizing the importance and helping us celebrate and encourage these athletes to stay fit and have fun!

Would you consider a donation to our team !? By making a donation to motionball, you'll be supporting athletes like Claire .... and also helping make it all worth the pain and swelling that follows this full day of sports for this out of shape mama =P.

Thank you very much for your support,  Amy

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.
