As most of you know, my amazing brother Mark has been involved in the Special Olympics for many years now and this is a cause that is very important to me and close to my heart, it's a great organization that gives back to so many.

On June 23, I am participating in an all-day fundraiser called Marathon of Sport, presented by Travel Nation. All funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. Throughout the day, I will be competing alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of sports such as basketball, soccer, bocce, bench ball, flag football and ultimate.

Marathon of Sport is organized by motionball. motionball 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. motionball now proudly hosts 24 annual events in 17 cities across the country. Through these events and since inception in 2002, motionball has donated over $7,500,000 to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

I’ll leave you with a message from our Special Olympics Superstar – my brother Marko!

"The reason why I love Special Olympics is because I have passion & perseverance so I never give up and I am the future of Special Olympics. I have 6 golds, 3 silvers and 3 bronze and my favorite part of Special Olympics is doing their fundraisers and trying to be a leader and a role model for everybody in Special Olympics. My special friends that I've made at the swim meets, floor hockey games and now motionball, we laugh together we sing together and we listen to our coaches together". Are they going to be your friends forever? "Absolutely all the friends that I have forever always".

-Mark Haggarty, Special Olympics Superstar
