Support Frank for the 2019 motionball Marathon Of Sport Ottawa

Hey ATSSC gang, this is my last attempt and collecting donations for Special Olympics Canada. I prefer to do it in a passive way as opposed to standing in front of you asking for donations whilst I bat my eyelashes...don't know if that would hurt or help!!

Anyway the event is September 21. I will participating in an all-day event called the motionball Marathon of Sport Ottawa alongside a bunch of intellectually challenged young adults. All funds raised are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

Marathon of Sport Ottawa 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.

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

Thanks again for your support,  Frank

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.
