Support Jamie MacDougall for the 2022 motionball Marathon Of Sport Halifax

As most of you know I am an avid volunteer for Special Olympica Nova Scotia. We have approximately 1500 - 2000 athletes involved in our programs throughout NS. I can go on about the benefits of Special Olympics in our community but I thnk most of you have heard and know about our organization.

The attached is a picture of a friend of mine from Truro named Noel. He is a Bocce athlete and participating in SO has enabled him to come out of his shell. The picture is actually Noel recieving the Bocce King's crown at the 2016 Provincial Summer Games. That's a whole other story!

On October 2, I am participating 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. I have competed in this event for approx 10 years and it is the one fund-raiser where I ask my friends to support me.

If you can click on the donation page link and sponsor me that would be great. I truly appreciate any support you can give.

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

Thank you very much for your support,
Jamie

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.
