Support Amy Matejcek for the 2022 motionball Marathon Of Sport Kelowna presented by Kelowna Toyota

On September 17, CLAIRE BEAR and the Fam Jam will be joining the AMAZING November Project in an all-day fundraiser called motionball Marathon of Sport. This is an action-packed day where my team and I will play sports alongside Special Olympics athletes from our community. This day helps to bring athletes of all abilities together on the playing field. While fundraising is one of our goals, Marathon of Sport is about so much more.

“motionball is a cool movement that motivates others to engage in the activities sports and events that encourage interaction with people who have an intellectual disability. It raises awareness to everyone that Special Olympic Athletes should not be judged and treated unfairly but included. motionball is important because it helps to prevent assumptions about people with disabilities and challenges. THANK YOU!”

By making a donation to motionball, you're helping to ensure that athletes like CLAIRE have the resources they need to safely return to the sport programs they love.

Thank you very much for your support, Claire & The Matejcek Crew

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.
