Support Alyssa Chan for the 2021 motionball Marathon Of Sport Simon Fraser 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.

My sports are Aquatics, Athletics, Basketball, Club Fit, Curling, Soccer, Softball and 10-Pin Bowling. I work part time as a dishwasher at a catering business and most days swim at a local pool for exercise. I have an e.bike that I like to ride on nice days to/from work and to/from the pool. I also enjoy taking our dog for walks. My hobbies are gaming on my computer and everything Disney.

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.
