Support Joanie Frechette for the 2021 motionball Marathon Of Sport McGill University

I am proud to be participating in the 2021 Move for motionball physical activity tracking challenge
We can't gather in person to run any on-campus fundraisers this year, so we need your support
more than ever. Funds raised at this even will ensure that Special Olympic athletes have the
resources they need to stay active at home and when programs are safe to return no athlete gets left
behind
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.

Bonjour à tous!
Je suis fière de participer à l’évènement “Bouger pour motionball” 2021!
Malheureusement, due à la pandémie, nous ne pouvons se réunir sur le campus pour organiser des levées de fonds cette année. Nous avons alors besoin de votre support plus que jamais! Les fonds amassés cette année serviront à soutenir les athlètes d’Olympiques Spéciaux en leur fournissant les ressources nécessaires afin de rester actif à la maison. De plus, ils serviront à s’assurer que lorsque les programmes mis en place pourront recommencer, qu’aucun n’athlète ne soit exclu.
Votre don est crucial afin d’encourager les athlètes participants aux programmes d’Olympiques Spéciaux, que ce soit nos athlètes nationaux ou les milliers de jeunes qui pratiquent différents sports pour leur santé, le plaisir, et les amitiés qu’ils créent. En donnant à la cause, vous appuyer les parents, frères/sœurs, tuteurs, aidants et ami(e)s d’individus vivant avec une déficience intellectuelle et qui imagine un monde inclusif et rempli d’opportunités sans fin.
En encourageant la fondation motionball, vous contribuez à amasser des fonds et aidez à sensibiliser les gens au tour de vous face au mouvement des Olympiques Spéciaux, mais surtout, vous permettez à davantage de personnes vivant avec une déficience intellectuelle de bénéficier du pouvoir transformateur du sport.
Merci de votre considération – tout support est grandement apprécié.

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.
