Support David Lecourt for the 2023 motionball Marathon Of Sport Toronto

On May 26th I will once again be participating in an all-day fundraiser called motionball Marathon of Sport, bringing athletes of all abilities together on the playing field. 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!

As a supporter of Motionball over the years, the work that is done to bring forward inclusion, opportunity and personal growth through sport is nothing short of astounding. Motionball is a family that encourages, enables and drives all involved to accept and embrace the unique differences in everyone.

In 2023 I am once again pleased to say I am Captaining a Molson Coors Motionball Marathon of Sport team in support of Special Olympics Canada

As many of you know, my participation in Motionball has ramped up since we welcomed our second son Zachary into our lives who was born with Down Syndrome. Zach, who just turned Three May 14th continues to be a beacon of light for our family and continues to leave an impact on so many in the short time he has been with us. Our family is excited to one day have Zach join the Special Olympic family and while the road ahead will take a lot of work, initiatives driven through incredible organizations like Motionball will help provide the road map.

Thank you very much for your support

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.
