Support Mark Haggarty for the 2021 motionball Marathon Of Sport Hamilton

On September 18, I am participating in my 7th motionball Marathon of Sport! While fundraising is one of our goals, Marathon of Sport is about so much more. This day not only brings awareness to the Special Olympics movement, but allows people with and without intellectual disabilities to interact, build lifelong friendships, and ultimately create more inclusive communities.

With Special Olympics programs and initiatives on hold, me and my friends at Special Olympics need you more than ever. For many of us, Special Olympics is not just about sport staying fit and healthy, but also about providing a social network, a sense of belonging and a valuable source of stability – all essential to our mental and physical health.

By making a donation to motionball, you're helping to ensure that athletes like ME have the resources we need to stay active at home and that when the time comes later this year, we can safely return to the sport programs we love.

Thank you very much for your support, Mark

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.
