Friends & Family,

On May 25, I am participating in an all-day fundraiser called the motionball Marathon of Sport. Many of you already know how near and dear this cause is to my heart. You also already know that all funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. What you may not know is that last year, I was forced to sit on the sidelines as a baby had taken up residence in my uterus! As much as I hounded Paul, he insisted that I should be benched as we didn’t want Win to be born with a dented head.

Well, this year? I’M BACK BABY! And I couldn’t be more excited to join all of my favourite Special Olympic athletes on the field! I already have a feeling that they will not be taking it easy on this baby vessel, so I’m going to have to up my game and show them how well I can fundraise!

Need a quick refresher on what the motionball marathon is all about? Marathon of Sport Toronto is part of a larger national movement called motionball for Special Olympics, a non-profit organization that empowers young Canadians to be leaders in their communities, raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics so that individuals with intellectual disabilities can lead happier, healthier lives. Special Olympics provides opportunities for over 47,000 Canadians with intellectual disabilities to experience the transformative power of sport. Today, motionball proudly hosts over 40 events across Canada and has delivered over $10.8 million to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation!

Thank you SO much for your support!   Lauren
