Support Jamie MacDougall for the 2020 motionball Marathon Of Sport Halifax

Hi Folks,
Most of you know I am a long time supporter of Special Olympics Nova Scotia. Special Olympics provides sports programming for persons with intellectual disabilities. This is the one fundraiser I am involved with each year.
For the last 9 years I have been organizing the Bocce Tournament that is held annually as part of the Special Olympics Nova Scotia Summer Games. Over 120 athletes register each year for the Bocce Tournament. The 3 day event is a highlight of the year for a lot of our athletes. To the coaches and athletes involved in the tournament I am known as "The Bocce King".
Special Olympics is a great organization that provides a great service to an underserved sector of our society. I appreciate any support you can provide.

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.
