On Wednesday, March 13, we are participating in a fundraising hockey game that brings together students from across campus at St. FX to support and fundraise for motionball for Special Olympics and the Canadian Cancer Society!
This day will bring together students to compete in a Business vs. Art-Sci Rivalry game all for a good cause. The dollars raised at this event will raise important funds for motionball to support Special Olympics athletes in our community, in our province, and across the country. We, the Business Team, are fundraising for motionball and the Art-Sci team is fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society.
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 the athletes we support 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!
