On Saturday, June 24th I will be participating in a day long fundraiser called “Marathon of Sport” with all proceeds supporting the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

As some of you may know, Special Olympics is an organization I am deeply fond of. Through coaching floor hockey along with assisting with numerous Special Olympics events over the years, I have been fortunate enough to see firsthand how sport enriches the lives of these amazing athletes.

Marathon of Sport is a fun day of athletic competition that sees Corporate Calgary (including two teams of Calgary Flames employees) compete alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of sports & activities including, soccer, flag football and basketball. Last year, “Team Flames” had a tremendous experience playing with our Special Olympics athlete Bill as we competed against other corporations at Mount Royal University and look forward to doing it again next month in hopes of introducing the next generation of donors, volunteers and sponsors to the Special Olympics movement.

Through these events and since inception in 2002, motionball has donated over $7.5 million to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

Please note any donation of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt.

With your support, athletes with an intellectual disability will continue to be provided the opportunity to realize their full athletic potential with appropriate coaching, competitions along with improving their self-esteem.
