Support Team Goloot for the 2022 motionball Marathon Of Sport Montreal

On September 11, we will be replacing our morning coffees and our laptops by ice cold Gatorades and running shoes. The Goloot team will be participating in an all-day fundraiser called motionball Marathon of Sport, an action-packed day where we will play sports alongside Special Olympics athletes from our community. The goal: Bring athletes of all abilities together while bringing awareness to the Special Olympics movement. This day is not only a great opportunity to raise money for a special cause, it also allows people with and without intellectual disabilities to interact, build lifelong friendships, and ultimately create more inclusive communities. Athletes like Tess represent a great source of inspiration and motivate us to push ourselves in our personal and team endeavours.

Tess first became involved with motionball’s Marathon of Sport 6 years ago, and since then has participated in countless motionball events. This year, she takes on the role of motionball's Honorary Athlete Ambassador! Nothing can stop this Special Olympics World Games two-time gold medalist. With Special Olympics programs and initiatives returning this summer, our friends at Special Olympics need us more than ever. For many of them, 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 their mental and physical health. Join us in ensuring that athletes like Tess have the resources they need to safely return to the sport programs they love. Help us reach our fundraising objective by making a donation to motionball using the link below. Thank you very much for your support, The Goloot team

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.
