Support David Ogbuah for the 2023 motionball Marathon Of Sport Cape Breton

Hi Everyone,

For those of you that don't know, motionball is a national organization, with chapters across Canada, that raise funds and awareness for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation; and, as many of you know, I have been involved with motionball for a number of years now.

On June 24th 2023, motionballers across Cape Breton Island will gather with friends, family, and colleagues at Cape Breton University, spending the day competing in a Marathon of Sport alongside the very same Special Olympics athletes that they are raising funds and awareness for.

When people ask me about motionball, I tell them that the experience is very difficult to put into words, but when you do experience it once, you will look forward to it again year after year.

I am collecting donations again this year to help support these Special Olympics athletes and, for those of you that are able, I ask that you consider making a donation and/or sharing the following link -

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.
