Support Team Molson Coors 1 for the 2022 motionball Marathon Of Sport Toronto

Sending you a note if you are interested in joining our Molson Coors Motionball Marathon of Sport team 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 2022 I am pleased to say I am Captaining the Molson Coors Motionball Marathon of Sport team in support of Special Olympics Canada As many of you know, my participation in Motionball shifted from being a supporter to being part of the family when we welcomed our second son Zachary into our lives who was born with Down Syndrome. Zach, who will be 2 Years old this Month is a beacon of light for our family and has already impacted so many lives 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. Join the team if you are available and please feel free to invite anyone else I may have missed! Cheers Turfy

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.
