Support Jayda church for the 2024 motionball Marathon Of Sport University of Saskatchewan

On September 8, we are 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. 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.

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. The highlight of this event each year is having the opportunity to compete alongside local Special Olympics athletes like Ruby.

Ruby first became involved with motionball’s Marathon of Sport 10 years ago, and since then has participated in countless motionball events. This year we're so excited to have Ruby take on the role of motionball's Honorary Athlete Ambassador. Hear from Ruby about what being part of motionball means to her!

“I am so happy to be a part of motionball. I have loved making so many new friends over the years and doing so many exciting things with the motionball team. My favourite part of motionball events is seeing all my friends and meeting all kinds of new people. My favourite sports to play at Marathon of Sport are basketball, soccer and of course... all the dancing!”

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 our athletes' mental and physical health.

By making a donation to motionball, you're helping to ensure that athletes like Ruby have the resources they to stay connected and active in their communities and compete at their highest levels.

Thank you very much for your support, Jayda
