Support Kat Kowalczyk for the 2020 motionball Marathon Of Sport Kingston

Hi all!

I've been so blessed over the last few years to have had the opportunity to meet and work with individuals with intellectual disabilities that have brought so much joy and beautiful friendship into my life.

On that note, I am super excited to be participating in Motionball’s first ever Virtual Marathon of Sport alongside my Queen Street Fitness Team this Saturday September 26th!

Sadly, many Special Olympics programs and fundraising initiatives have been placed on hold this year.

Your donation, no matter big or small would provide support for athletes participating in Special Olympics programs at every level. You'd be supporting thousands of athletes who look forward to these weekly programs and practices, as they are a source of fun, opportunity for friendship and inclusion for all.

Any support is greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for your consideration! You're truly making it possible for more people with intellectual disabilities to benefit from the transformative power of sport.

If you have any questions please feel free to message me or visit motionball.com/marathonofsport/

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.
