Support Alex Marshall for the 2020 motionball Marathon Of Sport Toronto

Special Olympics have given so much to my brother throughout the years, that it is time I gave something back. My brother Mike is a Special Olympics Ontario athlete who plays Floor Hockey (Milton Ducks), Basketball (Milton Scorpions), Softball (Milton Muddawgs), and is a part of Special Hockey International (Mississauga Crusaders). Mike is my hero. Throughout my life I have always been inspired by the way he sees the world and the happiness he shares with everyone he meets. He motivates me to be a better person every day.

Motionball goes above and beyond to support Special Olympics athletes. They have stepped up their game throughout the pandemic by keeping the athletes engaged on weekly dance parties and workout sessions. On a personal note, the compassion they shared throughout Mike's health scare in July will never be forgotten and I will be a huge supporter for the rest of my life so I hope you will join me in supporting this cause by donating and tuning in on September 26th.

For more details about Motionball see the info they provide below:

On September 26, I am proud to be participating in motionball’s first ever virtual edition of Marathon of Sport, hosted by Olympic Champion Tessa Virtue.

We can’t play in person this year, so we need your support more than ever. With many Special Olympics programs and fundraising initiatives on hold, our goal is to ensure that no athlete is left behind when programs resume.

Your donation is critical in supporting athletes participating in Special Olympics programs at every level, from the athletes who bring home gold medals and make Canada proud on the world stage to the thousands who look forward to weekly practice for fitness, fun, and friendship. You are supporting the parents, siblings, caregivers and friends of individuals with intellectual disabilities, who imagine a world of inclusion & endless possibilities.

By supporting motionball, you are helping raise important funds and creating awareness for the Special Olympics movement and making it possible for more people with intellectual disabilities to benefit from the transformative power of sport.
Thank you for your consideration -- any support is greatly appreciated.

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.
