Support Team CBU Womens Basketball for the 2020 motionball Marathon Of Sport Cape Breton

We are proud to be supporting motionball Cape Breton, raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics programs.

Special Olympics changes the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities through the transformative power of sport. With the COVID-19 pandemic leaving competitions cancelled, programs suspended, and fundraising initiatives on hold, our goal is to raise important funds needed to ensure that no athlete is left behind.

Your donation is 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.

By supporting motionball, you are making it possible for more people with intellectual disabilities to lead happier, healthier lives.

Thank you for your consideration -- any support is greatly appreciated.

HOW CAN YOUR DOLLARS HELP?

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.
