As most of you know, I've been fortunate to be involved with Motionball for a decade now, and it's an organization that continues to impress and inspire me. Even after our surprising top 3 finish last year, the team was kind enough to invite me back rather than recruit someone more skilled to take a shot at victory! This year, our team will take our talents to the field on May 27th for the all-day fundraiser called Marathon of Sport in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. Throughout the day, we'll be competing alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of sports such as basketball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, bench ball, football and more.

For me, Motionball is rather unique in that the focus throughout the day and across their events nationwide truly is on the Special Olympics athletes. With each team having an athlete participating alongside them, it allows us to see the positive impact our efforts can have not only on them, but their families as well. Last year our team's Special Olympian Horto truly was an inspiration: always with a smile, a cheerful word and a desire to compete with fairness every minute he could.

Thank you to anyone who's able to give a little, or a lot. I can guarantee your money has a wonderfully positive impact within our community. My donation link is in my bio.

For those of you not familiar with Motionball and the various awareness and fundraising events they do across the country, I'd urge you to take a look at their website and see the impact they've had.

Thank you very much for your support,

motionball for Special Olympics is introducing the next generation of supporters, donors and volunteers to the Special Olympics movement through integrated sporting and social events across Canada.
