Support Domenico Comita for the 2023 motionball Marathon Of Sport Thompson Rivers University

On March 25, we are participating in a fundraiser event for the Special Olympics called motionball Marathon of Sport. My team (Raise the Roof) and I will play a variety of sports games with Special Olympics athletes from our community. This day will help bring athletes of all abilities together.

For many participants, Special Olympics is not just about sport, or staying fit and healthy, but also about providing a social network, a sense of belonging and a valuable source of stability – all essential to their mental and physical health.

Not only does this day bring awareness to the Special Olympics movement, it also brings people together and allows us to ultimately create more unified communities.

In addition to the Motionball Marathon of Sport event, my friends and I took part in the annual Ski, Bike, Run to raise awareness. On March 19th, we completed a 100km marathon of sport: cycling from the shores of the North Thompson River to the lakes of Lac le Jeune, skiing 15km at Stake Lake before cycling back to Kamloops for a 10km run.

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

Thank you very much for your support, Domenico

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.
