This year is going to be another big year for myself, why? Last year I participated in a Marathon of Sport (Motionball) under Special Olympics and raised my hands up to be the fundraising team captain with my RED people. We successfully exceeded our fundraising goal which was $3535 and was listed in the top 10 fundraising teams for Vancouver. And so this year, I am planning to make more impact by bringing in more people who shared the same passion as I do and eventually fundraise bigger with my REDFam!

If you don’t know what is Marathon of Sport - Motionball, it is a not-for-profit whose mandate is to introduce the next generation of donors, volunteers and sponsors to the Special Olympics movement through integrated social and sporting events. And on June 2, I will be competing alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of sports with my RED team.

What is the ask? I want to fundraise at least $2500 for the Special Olympics Canada through Marathon of Sport and I need your help! Why? Because Marathon of Sport wants to raise $150,000 in Vancouver to support the special kids-athletes in this city and I hope we can all help them in reaching their impactful goal.

Where will the funds go?
1. Motionball was proud to donate 70% of the funds raised from the Marathon of Sport event to Special Olympics British Columbia. This funding is directed to support programs for special local athletes in the community.
2. 25% is directed to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation, whose mission is to ensure the long-term financial integrity of the Special Olympics movement in Canada and to fund long term athlete and volunteer growth.
3. The remaining 5% will help grow the #NoGoodWay Campaign aiming to end the use of the R-word (retard) in everyday conversation. We’re encouraging Canadians to make the choice to eliminate the R-word from their vocabulary and empower them to take #NoGoodWay to their circles of influence (https://www.facebook.com/nogoodway/videos/2053851068225354/?hc_ref=ARRZMGhc-TXmuZO1YVc0fRHpUztonZtcWGmE9_LeXMssl4S19Ggm4MKFJshvi5yuxys).
