Donate Now

On June 10, I am participating in an all-day fundraiser called Marathon of Sport presented by VEGA. All funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. My team and I will be paired with one or two local Special Olympics athletes and throughout the day we will be competing alongside them in a variety of sports such as beach volleyball, european handball, ultimate, bocce, soccer, Special Olympics Functional Training, BUMP, benchball and an obstacle course. I'll be learning first hand a bit about their lives and the importance of what sports brings to them. I believe very strongly in this cause and am trying to bring awareness about it to as many people as I can, while raising some funds to pay for equipment, travel, accommodation, competition officials, early start programs for youngsters, and many other necessities for the Canadian Special Olympic Foundation.
