Welcome to the motionballU Supporters page!
We're thrilled to offer the opportunity for motionball supporters to get involved with Marathon of Sport this year, just in a new, virtual way. We invite you to either register as a participant using the JOIN THIS TEAM button above, or to make a donation below!
By supporting motionball, you are helping raise important funds and creating awareness for the Special Olympics movement and making it possible for more people with intellectual disabilities to benefit from the transformative power of sport. We are working to ensure that Special Olympics programs can return with strength and stability when it is safe to do so, and that no athlete is left behind.
Your fundraising efforts and donations are critical in supporting athletes participating in Special Olympics programs at every level, from the athletes who bring home gold medals and make Canada proud on the world stage to the thousands who look forward to weekly practice for fitness, fun, and friendship. You are supporting the parents, siblings, caregivers and friends of individuals with intellectual disabilities, who imagine a world of inclusion & endless possibilities.
Thank you for your consideration -- any support is greatly appreciated. We look forward to tuning in to the motionball Marathon of Sport broadcast all together on September 26th EST via Rogers Sportsnet.

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.
