Over the past nine years, I’ve been blessed with memories I will cherish for a lifetime because of motionball. The hundreds of hugs and high-five on the sports field, the letters from the parents of Special Olympic Athletes, the joy of seeing friends and colleagues experience their first Marathon of Sport; the list goes on!

One of my favorite ‘motionball moments’ was welcoming Michaela Robinson to the podium for a speech during the 2017 closing ceremonies. Because of her exposure to Special Olympics Canada, Michaela’s made lifelong friendships, proudly represented her city, province, and country, and most recently, she mentors new Special Olympics Athletes. However, more than anything, what stood out was Michaela’s confidence, charisma, and deep passion for motionball and Special Olympics Canada. All 400 attendees gave Michaela a roaring standing ovation… it was amazing!!

motionball simply wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of my loving friends and family. I am very appreciative of anything you’re able to contribute this year.

Sincerely,
Michael
